The Using e-Learning Data to Improve Learning Workshop simultaneously overviews analytics and quiz statistics in the e-Learning management system as well as highlight ways to use the data to improve student’s learning experience. Participants will engage in rich discussion while navigating through the e-Learning data and analytics. Participants will explore new ways using data to help improve their course assessments and discuss assessment best practices.  Participants will learn to make predictions about likely learning outcomes and prescribe appropriate interventions where needed to improve those outcomes. Participants will use the information presented in the workshop to identify trends within their own course.

This workshop is not just about data. Participants will learn to use the data to maximize course outcomes and measure student performances. Participants will drill down into student’s data to gain insight. Participants will use the course analytics highlighted here to analyze student activity data in order to make predictions about likely learning outcomes and prescribe appropriate interventions where needed to improve those outcomes.

 

Student Intervention

After analyzing data and drilling down to gain insight, participants will navigate to the course gradebook to begin the intervention process. Participants will navigate through the course gradebook to learn a new way to contact students and provide them support all at the click of a button.

Quiz Data

example of quiz question data

Participants will learn how to locate quiz statistics data and recognize good and bad elements of questions for increased validity and reliability. Participants will walk away from the workshop with the ability to dig deeper into their own assessment questions by interpreting the discrimination index results, question difficulty, and the distractor analysis.

 

Analyze Performance

Participants will get a chance to apply all that they have learned to practice when they analyze the performance of questions during the workshop. After the workshop, participants will be confident in their ability to recognize if an assessment accurately measure what it is intended to measure.
