Learning analytics aims to measure and predict the learning processes of students by tracking their behaviour and inferring their thinking processes. For example, it tracks time spent learning online or performance on an assessment. Summative learning analytics provides teachers or administrators with a digest of performance and insight into who needs support. Learning analytics presents and analyzes the data produced during learning and teaching. This is intended to help teachers or administrators understand the process of learning. As institutions and teachers collect more data about each learner’s profile and behaviour, they are starting to use learning analytics to predict which students need additional support. There is also a new approach in learning analytics called ‘formative analytics’. In line with feedback for learning, formative analytics supports learners to reflect on what is being learned, what can be improved, which goals can be achieved and how to move forward.
