Using data to drive learning outcomes isn’t a new concept, really. For as long as teachers have been giving students assessments, the assessments and results have been used by both students and teachers (even if only loosely) to determine how to move forward. What needs to be reviewed more? What was covered/studied well? Learning analytics takes this concept and kicks it up a notch. Well, more like a thousand notches, especially if you’re considering things like adaptive computer based testing that changes as students use it.
The handy infographic below takes a look at the four levels of learning analytics, which can be easily applied in your classroom whether you’re using a ton of fancy-schmancy technology or none at all. Take a look and tell us what you think: Do you use the four levels of learning analytics to drive change and learning in your classroom? Do you do it with technology or without?
