    Learning Engineering Tools for Testing xAPI Stuffs

    You might’ve noticed in my last post and previously, I’ve made reference to wanting to test stuff against CATAPULT, as our infrastructure relies on cmi5. I wrote a little bit too fast for my brain, though. CATAPULT is one framework which tests your content and/or your system for cmi5 conformance. CATAPULT doesn’t handle things like xAPI statements by themselves, so given that I need to think more clearly, so I can write more clearly, it merits today’s post on the different tools that exist for testing different things related to xAPI.

    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.

    Slicing and Dicing Data Model Work-to-be-Done

    In my last post, I shared a bit of background on the Casey-Fink Graduate Nursing Experience Survey, which I’m using in an ongoing case-study on how to approach analytics strategy. Today’s post will get further into the details of how to set up the work-to-be-done, in terms of data modeling.

    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.

    On Being Autistic

    I’m the sort of guy who gets upset when people run stop signs and turn on red when there’s clearly a “No Turn on Red” sign. People who don’t stop rarely fail to stop… they’re not even trying. They endanger anyone who happens to be walking and has the right of way. These traffic rules […]

  • Question-storming

    Question-storming

    “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 […]

    Where dimensions frame a problem space, metrics in learning analytics are how to make sense of an analysis.
