Abstract

An important research problem in learning analytics is to expedite the cycle of data leading to the analysis of student progress and the improvement of student support. For this goal in the context of social learning, we propose a pipeline that includes data infrastructure, learning analytics, and intervention , along with computational models for individual components. Next, we describe an example of applying this pipeline to real data in a case study, whose goal is to investigate the positive effects that goal-setting students have on their peers, which suggests ways in which we might foster these social benefits through intervention.An important research problem in learning analytics is to expedite the cycle of data leading to the analysis of student progress and the improvement of student support.
