TH104 - Investigating Performance

Thu, Jan 25 | 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM | 210AE

Session Description:
The increasing availability of learning data provides great opportunities and challenges. Learning and development professionals have the potential to support meaningful, actionable assessment of course design and learner achievement through data collection and analysis. In this session, we'll walk through the strategies and activities that will help you get the data you need to evaluate both course and user performance, and to plan for meaningful analytics for your stakeholders. We'll look at how to use data to improve learning approaches throughout the design cycle. Using a real-world learning scenario as a framework for our discussion, we'll start with a brief baseline overview of xAPI and its usage, then move on to an exploration of data types, strategy, and the basics of data analysis.

Application on the Job:
