Learning analytics as an investigation tool for teaching practicioners


Formative assessment plays an important role in teaching, to both provide learners with valuable feedback and to improve the teaching process. Recently, novel tools have been developed to support teachers in this context. These tools allow one to analyze the students' activity in detail and guide and improve the teaching process. We present one such tool, and the scenarios in which this tool would be used, following an evaluation. From these scenarios, we deduce the structure of a general analytical process for teachers that yields general requirements for the corresponding analytical tools.
