Our contribution at this year International Computer Assisted Assessment Conference (CAA 2014) about „Learning Analytics: From Theory to Practice – Data Support for Learning and Teaching“ is now online available.
Much has been written lately about the potential of Learning Analyt- ics for improving learning and teaching. Nevertheless, most of the contributions to date are concentrating on the abstract theoretical or algorithmic level, or, deal with academic efficiencies like teachers’ grading habits. This paper wants to fo- cus on the value that Learning Analytics brings to pedagogic interventions and feedback for reflection. We first analyse what Learning Analytics has to offer in this respect, and, then, present a practical use case of applied Learning Analytics for didactic support in primary school Arithmetic.
