A "quantified student" approach offers the potential to gain deeper insight into learning by correlating students' own life measurements with their course performance and event tracking. The quantified self (QS) movement proposes "self-knowledge through numbers" (aka self-tracking), usually through electronic-assisted personal data collection, and the "quantified patient" offshoot, a subset of health data with a doctor. Similarities between students and patients with regard to assessment and performance make the "quantified patient" a suitable springboard for developing a "quantified student" approach to improved learning, in which student-collected life data, both ambient and explicit, is shared with analytics tools that assist both instructors and students in optimizing their approach to education. Attendees will be able to continue the conversation at a dedicated website devoted to QS in education.

OBJECTIVES: Gain familiarity with and an understanding of core quantified self and quantified patient ideas * Learn specific tools and reproducible methods for recording student life activity most relevant to learning analytics * Learn about key correspondences between student and patient performance measurement as a launchpad for your own investigation
