Data Strategy Starts with Reporting Strategy
I want our individual contributors to gain the skills and the hard learnings of working with xAPI so they can grow their skills and mature our practices independent of my spoon-feeding information when it finally seems relevant (to me). As a result, I get questions and feedback that helps me more effectively understand how, at…
Lambdas vs. Deltas
When I talk about analyzing things for deltas, I’m looking at the change in value. Before I analyze things for deltas, though, I’m looking for changes in the “shape” of the information (or data) — which are lambdas.
Governing How Survey Questions Relate to Concepts
Today we defined the work-to-be-done to address the need for a top-down schema of the survey, so today let’s focus on how I’m thinking about our first xAPI Profile.
My xAPI Analytics Goals for 2023
Now that I seem to be back in the writing groove, I feel like it’s time to commit with some intentionality to how I want to learn and grow my own skills, and what I want to have shared through writing or producing another way, this year.
Modeling, Up & Down: Statements & Profiles
This is the fourth in a series. In my last post, I identified at least two work-streams for the team to pursue in coming up with our analytics strategy, which for all intents and purposes is our integration strategy
What is Precision Learning?
I define precision learning as an instructional methodology for continuous curriculum-based assessment towards observable outcomes with measurable goals. The “precision” makes it a little buzwordy, however I posit it helps situate what it is in the context of its origins…
Analytics Potential for Sessions with Media
Much like any content or media with which we engage users, with a survey we need to prioritize more than just the survey results; we should be improving the survey and the survey experience. Here’s how I approach it.
“Question-storming” is an exercise I tapped into back in the very early xAPI days. I hit a wall; one I suspect most of y’all come up against when you’re ready to start doing something meaningful with xAPI. I struggled to articulate questions that felt like it made xAPI worth doing, and I would get discouraged…
Metrics in Learning Analytics
Where dimensions frame a problem space, metrics in learning analytics are how to make sense of an analysis.
Dimensions in Learning Analytics
Dimensions in Learning Analytics are the ways we describe the (theoretical) space in which we’ll analyze… learning.
