Hadavand, Aboozar; Muschelli, John; Leek, Jeffrey – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
Due to the fundamental differences between traditional education and massive open online courses (MOOCs), and because of the ever-increasing popularity of the latter, more research is needed to understand current and future trends in MOOCs. Although research in the field has grown rapidly in recent years, one of the main challenges facing…

Winne, Philip H.; Teng, Kenny; Chang, Daniel; Lin, Michael Pin-Chuan; Marzouk, Zahia; Nesbit, John C.; Patzak, Alexandra; Rakovic, Mladen; Samadi, Donya; Vytasek, Jovita – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
Data used in learning analytics rarely provide strong and clear signals about how learners process content. As a result, learning as a process is not clearly described for learners or for learning scientists. Gaševic, Dawson, and Siemens (2015) urged data be sought that more straightforwardly describe processes in terms of events within learning…

Ochoa, Xavier; Merceron, Agathe – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
LAK-18, the 8th International Conference on Learning Analytics and Knowledge, was hosted by the University of Sydney, Australia, from March 5 to 9, 2018. Traditionally, authors of papers that have received high scores through the review process of the conference are invited to extend their paper and submit it for a special issue of this journal.…

Jørnø, Rasmus Leth; Gynther, Karsten – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
The possibilities of Learning Analytics as a tool for empowering teachers and educators have created a steep interest in how to provide so-called actionable insights. However, the literature offers little in the way of defining or discussing what the term "actionable insight" means. This selective literature review provides a look into…

Chen, Bodong; Knight, Simon; Wise, Alyssa Friend – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
The importance of temporality in learning has been long established, but it is only recently that serious attention has begun to be paid to the precise identification, measurement, and analysis of the temporal features of learning. From 2009 to 2016, a series of temporality workshops explored temporal concepts and data types, analysis methods for…

Motz, Benjamin A.; Carvalho, Paulo F.; de Leeuw, Joshua R.; Goldstone, Robert L. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
To identify the ways teachers and educational systems can improve learning, researchers need to make causal inferences. Analyses of existing datasets play an important role in detecting causal patterns, but conducting experiments also plays an indispensable role in this research. In this article, we advocate for experiments to be embedded in real…

Shum, Simon Buckingham; Sándor, Ágnes; Goldsmith, Rosalie; Bass, Randall; McWilliams, Mindy – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
When used effectively, reflective writing tasks can deepen learners' understanding of key concepts, help them critically appraise their developing professional identity, and build qualities for lifelong learning. As such, reflective writing is attracting substantial interest from universities concerned with experiential learning, reflective…

Gaševic, Dragan; Jovanovic, Jelena; Pardo, Abelardo; Dawson, Shane – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
The use of analytic methods for extracting learning strategies from trace data has attracted considerable attention in the literature. However, there is a paucity of research examining any association between learning strategies extracted from trace data and responses to well-established self-report instruments and performance scores. This paper…

Casey, Kevin – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
Learning analytics offers insights into student behaviour and the potential to detect poor performers before they fail exams. If the activity is primarily online (for example computer programming), a wealth of low-level data can be made available that allows unprecedented accuracy in predicting which students will pass or fail. In this paper, we…

Sharma, Kshitij; Chavez-Demoulin, Valérie; Dillenbourg, Pierre – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
The statistics used in education research are based on central trends such as the mean or standard deviation, discarding outliers. This paper adopts another viewpoint that has emerged in statistics, called extreme value theory (EVT). EVT claims that the bulk of normal distribution is comprised mainly of uninteresting variations while the most…

Khalila, Mohammad; Ebner, Martin – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2016
Learning analytics has reserved its position as an important field in the educational sector. However, the large-scale collection, processing, and analyzing of data has steered the wheel beyond the borders to face an abundance of ethical breaches and constraints. Revealing learners' personal information and attitudes, as well as their activities,…

Hoel, Tore; Chen, Weiqin – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2016
Studies have shown that issues of privacy, control of data, and trust are essential to implementation of learning analytics systems. If these issues are not addressed appropriately, systems will tend to collapse due to a legitimacy crisis, or they will not be implemented in the first place due to resistance from learners, their parents, or their…

Cormack, Andrew – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2016
Most studies on the use of digital student data adopt an ethical framework derived from human-subject research, based on the informed consent of the experimental subject. However, consent gives universities little guidance on using learning analytics as a routine part of educational provision: which purposes are legitimate and which analyses…

Gruzd, Anatoliy; Paulin, Drew; Haythornthwaite, Caroline – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2016
In just a short period, social media have altered many aspects of our daily lives, from how we form and maintain social relationships to how we discover, access, and share information online. Now social media are also affecting how we teach and learn. In this paper, we discuss methods that can help researchers and educators evaluate and understand…

Chen, Bodong; Zhang, Jianwei – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2016
Innovation and knowledge creation call for high-level epistemic agency and design-mode thinking, two competencies beyond the traditional scopes of schooling. In this paper, we discuss the need for learning analytics to support these two competencies, and more broadly, the demand for education for innovation. We ground these arguments on a…
