Learning Analytics


Turn Data Into Real-Time Actionable Information About Student Learning

Use The Learning Dashboard to provide effective learning interventions right at the point of need.

Identify at risk students


 Discover New Insights About Your Students’ Learning

Acrobatiq’s data collection and modeling capabilities go beyond typical “engagement” analytics.

Most learning analytic systems Track what students do, Record which questions students get right or wrong, and Summarize student performance.

The Learning Dashboard goes significantly beyond tracking, recording and summarizing student data by:

  • Revealing what students did/did not learn
  • Quantifying how well students have learned each skill
  • Identifying consequential patterns in students’ learning behaviors
  • Measuring effectiveness of instructional and design choices

See Where Students Are Succeeding And Where They Are Failing

In order to guide student learning, and improve learning outcomes, learning data must be actionable.

One of the most powerful features of Acrobatiq courseware is the embedded formative assessment and feedback in each learning  activity – called Learn By Doing and Did I Get This? activities.  As students engage with these instructional elements online, they produce a rich data stream on the learning process. Research has shown that such data – when combined with our understanding of how learning works – can be used to improve and personalize learning.

As students are learning, we are learning about students – and using the data to optimize their learning experience.

The Learning Dashboard


Find Answers Quickly With Query-Based Dashboards 

See the most common questions about student learning in one click.

The Learning Dashboard dynamically displays student learning estimates, engagement data and activity data in real time.  The query-based user interface not only surfaces most common questions from learning data, but it also allows instructors to arrange the “data cards” in a way that best suits their goals.

The home dashboard surfaces most common questions faculty have from learning data and dynamically displays the results.  Faculty can quickly learn:

  • Which activities have students practiced the most?
  • Which students are struggling?
  • What did my students learn in the past week?
  • Who is participating the most in my class?
  • What were the most challenging assignments this week?

The home dashboard page is fully customizable.  Data cards can be moved, saved, or deleted and new data cards can be added based on instructor preferences.


Discover New Insights By Changing the Data View

Designed for busy instructors, The Learning Dashboard  makes analyzing student learning easy.

With The Learning Dashboard, instructors can easily pivot the learning estimates between students and learning objectives.  Using just color and graph position, instructors can quickly see who’s not engaged,  who’s at risk, who’s doing significant work but not mastering learning objectives and who’s making good progress.

The customizable data cards enable instructors to quickly understand students’ learning estimates and make more informed decisions about how to help their students succeed.

Identify at risk students


Improve Course Completion and Student Retention Rates

Enable faculty, students, and other stakeholders to visualize and act on student learning performance.

Faculty, course mentors and others involved in the delivery of instruction can use The Learning Dashboard to guide a range of decisions to help measure, assess and improve student learning performance, student engagement, program ROI and program compliance goals.

With data from The Learning Dashboard, faculty can quickly identify at-risk students early and mitigate issues quickly.

You’ll know, for example:

  • Which students have not engaged in enough practice.
  • Which students are working hard, but not mastering key learning objectives and are therefore becoming “at risk.”

Armed with these learning data insights (and many more),  you can intervene where students need help the most, provide targeted feedback, and make timely course adjustments − actions proven to strengthen learning outcomes.


Assess the Impact of Course Design and Instructional Content Elements

Use Real Time Learning Analytics to Quickly Identify Course Trouble Spots.

Learning data can also be effectively used to identify specific instructional activities that are proving troublesome for students or producing unexpected learning results.  Learning data can reveal poorly worded questions, multiple skills that may be conflated into one learning objective, or skills that simply do not have enough formative practice to produce learning gains. Learning data allows course authors or curriculum design teams to improve, enhance or replace instructional activities.

In later dashboard releases, instructors, course authors, and instructional design teams will have the benefit of A/B testing tools to test changes in course activities against the current design and determine which ones produce positive learning gains.

Enabling continuous, data-driven course improvements ensures that each successive group of students taking the course has the most up-to-date and optimized learning experience.
