This session will focus on the set-up of a learning analytics project, from what makes a good research question to data analysis. As part of a project to move courses online, simple course activity data were taken from the institution's learning management system and correlated to student course performance. During the session, participants will engage in an activity that produces data that the group will then analyze. This session is geared toward those looking to start a learning analytics effort at their own institution. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop or tablet to this session.

Learning Objectives:
*Understand how to set up a good learning analytics study
*Learn how to ask good questions
*Learn how to analyze the data
*Consider how learning analytics conclusions drive change



The "evaluate" button for this session doesn't seem to be working. But the session was excellent: great use of a "live" example, very good pace, lots of time for questions (with thoughtful responses from the presenters). In short, a first-rate session.
