Van Horne, Sam; Curran, Maura; Smith, Anna; VanBuren, John; Zahrieh, David; Larsen, Russell; Miller, Ross – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2018
Instructional technologists and faculty in post-secondary institutions have increasingly adopted learning analytics interventions such as dashboards that provide real-time feedback to students to support student' ability to regulate their learning. But analyses of the effectiveness of such interventions can be confounded by measures of students'…

Howell, Joel A.; Roberts, Lynne D.; Seaman, Kristen; Gibson, David C. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2018
Higher education institutions are developing the capacity for learning analytics. However, the technical development of learning analytics has far exceeded the consideration of ethical issues around learning analytics. We examined higher education academics' knowledge, attitudes, and concerns about the use of learning analytics though four focus…

San Pedro, Maria Ofelia Z.; Baker, Ryan S.; Heffernan, Neil T. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Middle school is an important phase in the academic trajectory, which plays a major role in the path to successful post-secondary outcomes such as going to college. Despite this, research on factors leading to college-going choices do not yet utilize the extensive fine-grained data now becoming available on middle school learning and engagement.…

Guarcello, Maureen A.; Levine, Richard A.; Beemer, Joshua; Frazee, James P.; Laumakis, Mark A.; Schellenberg, Stephen A. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a voluntary, non-remedial, peer-facilitated, course-specific intervention that has been widely demonstrated to increase student success, yet concerns persist regarding the biasing effects of disproportionate participation by already higher-performing students. With a focus on maintaining access for all students, a…

Roberts, Lynne D.; Howell, Joel A.; Seaman, Kristen – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
With the increased capability of learning analytics in higher education, more institutions are developing or implementing student dashboards. Despite the emergence of dashboards as an easy way to present data to students, students have had limited involvement in the dashboard development process. As part of a larger program of research examining…

Lodge, Jason M.; Alhadad, Sakinah S. J.; Lewis, Melinda J.; Gaševic, Dragan – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
The use of big data in higher education has evolved rapidly with a focus on the practical application of new tools and methods for supporting learning. In this paper, we depart from the core emphasis on application and delve into a mostly neglected aspect of the big data conversation in higher education. Drawing on developments in cognate…

Winne, Philip H.; Nesbit, John C.; Popowich, Fred – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
A bottleneck in gathering big data about learning is instrumentation designed to record data about processes students use to learn and information on which those processes operate. The software system nStudy fills this gap. nStudy is an extension to the Chrome web browser plus a server side database for logged trace data plus peripheral modules…

Mah, Dana-Kristin – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Learning analytics and digital badges are emerging research fields in educational science. They both show promise for enhancing student retention in higher education, where withdrawals prior to degree completion remain at about 30% in Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development member countries. This integrative review provides an…

Gibson, David; de Freitas, Sara – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
This article summarizes the methods, observations, challenges and implications for exploratory analysis drawn from two learning analytics research projects. The cases include an analysis of a games-based virtual performance assessment and an analysis of data from 52,000 students over a 5-year period at a large Australian university. The complex…

Martin, Florence; Whitmer, John C. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Adaptive learning gives learners control of context, pace, and scope of their learning experience. This strategy can be implemented in online learning by using the "Adaptive Release" feature in learning management systems. The purpose of this study was to use learning analytics research methods to explore the extent to which the adaptive…

Frick, Theodore; Dagli, Cesur – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
We illustrate a very recent research study that demonstrates the value of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) as vehicles for research. We describe the development of the Indiana University Plagiarism Tutorials and Tests (IPTAT). Our new design has been guided by "First Principles of Instruction": authentic problems, activation,…

Lee, Victor R.; Drake, Joel – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2013
The introduction of sensor technologies to sports has allowed athletes to quantify and track their performance, adding an information-based layer to athletic practices. This information layer is particularly prevalent in practices involving formal competition and high levels of physical endurance, such as biking and running. We interviewed 20…
