From making travel plans, to online purchases, to watching videos, each day we generate vast amounts of data that contribute to the world of big data. We have already seen big data play a significant role in areas like marketing and science. Now, education has joined the big data movement. In the past, education data was sparse and disparate. Collected across individual gradebooks and housed within multiple platforms, data was inaccessible, laborious, and difficult to analyze. Thankfully, this has changed. Now, educators and researchers can access incredibly rich and meaningful logs about student learning behavior on educational software, and by employing EDM (education data mining), discover a great deal about how students learn. By connecting this powerful data and asking the right questions, there is potential to change the future of education. Learn about the ability to leverage meaningful data with EDM and learning analytics, and find out how to turn big data into big gains for students. Attend this webinar to discover how: Learning analytics and EDM are already transforming education EDM advancements can assess students’ knowledge as they are learning Specific EDM methods are proving useful in understanding and predicting which students are likely to succeed in 21st century careers Learning analytics can provide insight into the effectiveness of educational technology programs and the conditions under which these programs have the greatest return on learning

Education is about to experience a data tsunami from online trace data (VLEs; MOOCs; Quantified Self) integrated with conventional educational datasets. This requires new kinds of analytics to make sense of this new resource, which in turn asks us to reflect deeply on what kinds of learning we value. We can choose to know more than ever about learners and teachers, but like any modelling technology or accounting system, analytics do not passively describe sociotechnical reality: they begin to shape it. What realities do we want analytics to perpetuate, or bring into being? Can we talk about analytics in the same breath as the deepest values that a wholistic educational experience should nurture? Could analytics become an ally for those who want to shift assessment regimes towards valuing the qualities that many now regard as critical to thriving in the 'age of complexity'?

Predicting Instructor Performance Using Data Mining Techniques in Higher Education -- Data mining applications are becoming a more common tool in understanding and solving educational and administrative problems in higher education. In general, research in educational mining focuses on modeling student's performance instead of instructors' performance. One of the common tools to evaluate instructors' performance is the course evaluation questionnaire to evaluate based on students' perception. In this paper, four different classication techniquesdecision tree algorithms, support vector machines, articial neural networks, and discriminant analysisare used to build classier models. Their performances are compared over a data set composed of responses of students to a real course evaluation questionnaire using accuracy, precision, recall, and specicity performance metrics. Although all the classier models show comparably high classication performances, C5.0 classier is the best with respect to accuracy, precision, and specicity. In addition, an analysis of the variable importance for each classier model is done. Accordingly, it is shown that many of the questions in the course evaluation questionnaire appear to be irrelevant. Furthermore, the analysis shows that the instructors' success based on the students' perception mainly depends on the interest of the students in the course. The ndings of this paper indicate the effectiveness and expressiveness of data mining models in course evaluation and higher education mining. Moreover, these ndings may be used to improve the measurement instruments. Articial neural networks, classication algorithms, decision trees, linear discriminant analysis, performance evaluation, support vector machines. -- For More Details Contact Us -- S.Venkatesan Arihant Techno Solutions Pudukkottai www.arihants.com Mobile: +91 75984 92789

Apereo webinar examining two critical standards in learning analytics space - xAPI, and IMSGlobal Caliper. The presenters are Aaron Silver, from DISC, the organisation tasked with xAPI interoperability and conformance (http://datainteroperability.org/ ), and Anthony Whyte of the University of Michigan, who has been centrally involved in recent IMS Caliper developments. The drive to deliver education at scale coupled with a demand for accountability backed by measurability has spurred the application of “big data” principles to the business of education. Opportunities to tap new data sources have grown as both the learning technology ecosystem has expanded and the definition of what constitutes learning has evolved beyond the formal classroom experience to include informal, social and experiential modes of acquiring knowledge and skills. The challenges implicit | inherent in describing, collecting and exchanging learner activity data originating from such diverse sources are formidable. In response, two learning technology specifications, ADL’s xAPI and IMS Global’s Caliper Analytics, now offer standardized approaches that aim to address the data and semantic interoperability issues inherent in the blending | sharing of learning data between systems. For both communities, early work has focused on developing a RESTful architecture for mediating machine-to-machine data exchange and grappling with the challenge of defining an information model and controlled vocabularies that leverage semantic web principles and practices. Join Aaron Silvers and Anthony Whyte for a lively discussion of the current state and possible futures of both xAPI and Caliper. The views expressed in this video are the presenters own.

Talk presented at SSCI2014, in Orlando. Download paper from: http://personal.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Personal/Norman.Poh/data/poh_gradcert.pdf Abstract: Student performance depends upon factors other than intrinsic ability, such as environment, socio-economic status, personality and familial-context. Capturing these patterns of influence may enable an educator to ameliorate some of these factors, or for governments to adjust social policy accordingly. In order to understand these factors, we have undertaken the exercise of predicting student performance, using a cohort of approximately 8,000 South African college students. They all took a number of tests in English and Maths. We show that it is possible to predict English comprehension test results from (1) other test results; (2) from covariates about self-efficacy, social economic status, and specific learning difficulties there are 100 survey questions altogether; (3) from other test results + covariates (combination of (1) and (2)); and from (4) a more advanced model similar to (3) except that the covariates are subject to dimensionality reduction (via PCA). Models 1-4 can predict student performance up to a standard error of 13-15%. In comparison, a random guess would have a standard error of 17%. In short, it is possible to conditionally predict student performance based on self-efficacy, socio-economic background, learning difficulties, and related academic test results.

Who Is Erik Duval? Erik chairs the research unit on human-computer interaction, at the computer science department of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. His research focuses on massive hyper-personalization ("The Snowflake Effect"), learning analytics, openness and abundance - topics on which he regularly keynotes. In practical terms, his team researches information visualization, mobile information devices, multi-touch displays and personal informatics. They typically apply their results to technology enhanced learning, access to music and 'research2.0′. More information on his activities and research team can be found at the pages of his research unit, his publications (see also his google scholar profile and his microsoft academic search profile) and his presentations. He also serves: - as chair of the IEEE LTSC working group on Learning Object Metadata, on the executive committee of the Society for Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR), - as a fellow of the AACE, - as a member of ACM, and the IEEE computer society. - on the Editorial Review Board and the Executive Advisory Board of the International Journal on E-Learning, - on the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies (TLT), - on the board of editors of the Journal of Universal Computer Science, - as a member of the informatics section of the Academia Europeae. He co-founded two spin-offs that apply research results for access to music and scientific output, as well as the not-for-profit ARIADNE Foundation that promotes share and reuse of learning material. What is this talk all about? Open Learning Analytics Learning is about empowerment. So, learning should be available to everybody. Open learning focuses on removing barriers and creating networks for authentic learning rather than the fake learning that characterizes much of formal education nowadays. As learning networks can involve thousands and as the interactions can be intense, the experience is sometimes overwhelming. However, as most activities take place on-line, we can collect the 'digital exhaust' in a Quantified Self approach to learning. Some use these traces for Educational Data Mining, in order to steer learners in the right direction. We believe more in a Learning Analytics approach where the relevant data are presented in an actionable way, in dashboards that put the learner in control.

PyData Seattle 2015 Education has seen the rise of a new trend in the last few years: Learning Analytics. This talk will weave through the complex interacting issues and concerns involving learning analytics, at a high level. The goal is to whet the appetite and motivate reflection on how data scientists can work with educators and learning scientists in this swelling field. Higher education has used analytics for a long time to guide administrative decisions. Universities are already adept at developing data-driven admissions strategies and increasingly they are using analytics in fund-raising. Learning analytics is a newer trend. Its core goal is to improve teaching, learning and student success through data. This is very appealing, but it's also fraught with complex interactions among many concerns and with disciplinary gaps between the various players. Faculty have always collected data on students' performance on assessments and responses on surveys for the purposes of grading and complying with accreditation, sometimes also for improving teaching methods and more rarely for research on how students learn. To call it Learning Analytics, though, requires scale and some form of systemic effort. Some early university efforts in analytics developed predictive models to identify at-risk first-year students, aiming to improve freshman retention (e.g., Purdue's "Signals" project). Others built alert systems in support of student advising, with the goal of increasing graduation rates (e.g., Arizona State University's "eAdvisor" system). Experts now segregate these efforts out of learning analytics, proper, because retention and graduation are not the same as learning. The goal, in that case, is to improve the function of the educational system, while learning analytics should be guided by educational research and be aimed at enhancing learning. To elucidate what is learning analytics, it looks like we first need to answer: what is learning? What is knowledge? And can more data lead to better learning? That is perhaps the zeroth assumption of learning analytics—and it needs to be tested. There are assumptions behind any data system that go as far back as selecting what to track, where it will be tracked, how it will be collected, stored and delivered. Most analytics is based on log data in the Learning Management System (LMS). This "learning in a box" model is inadequate, but the diverse ecosystem of apps and services used by faculty and students poses a huge interoperability problem. The billion-dollar education industry of LMS platforms, textbook publishers and testing companies all want a part in the prospect of "changing education" through analytics. They're all marketing their dazzling dashboards in a worrying wave of ed-tech solutionism. Meanwhile, students' every move gets tracked and logged, often without their knowledge or consent, adding ethical and legal issues of privacy for the quantified student.
