Using learner information

4.0    

A growing interest in making better use of the data we collect about learners to improve retention, achievement and outcomes.

This module examines how we currently use the data available to us, how we might find ways to develop it further to improve teaching and learning and what the emerging field of learning analytics might contribute.

Aim

Using information use to enhance learner outcomes

Objective

At the end of this module you will be able to:

- understand Learning Analytics and what it might contribute to more effective teaching and learning
- examine your current use of data and how you apply it to the improvement of learner outcomes
- lead discussion amongst your colleagues on better analysis and use of data to enhance teaching practice

Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the DTPF component - E1a : Assessment and feedback with peer feedback illustrations

  • Use digital assessment tools to monitor the learning process and obtain information on learners' progress.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative assessment strategies, e.g. using classroom response systems, quizzes, games.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative and summative assessment in tests, e.g. through computer-based tests, implementing audio or video (e.g. in language learning), using simulations or subject-specific digital technologies as test environments.
  • Use digital technologies to scaffold learners' assignments and their assessment, e.g. through ePortfolios.
  • Use a variety of digital and non-digital assessment formats and be aware of their benefits and drawbacks.
  • Critically reflect on the appropriateness of digital assessment approaches and adapt strategies accordingly.
