Competencies, Assessment, and Learning Analytics

EDU 6324 4 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Analyzes the intended outcomes of education, how we will know if we’ve made a difference, and what we can do to improve learning along the way. These hard but important questions are at the heart of learning design. The act of assessment verifies that learning has taken place, but it also provides opportunities for refining plans and improving student learning. Some strategies are easily implemented, while others require advanced expertise. Covers recent advances in technology that make it possible to gather a wealth of data on how people interact within the environments in which they learn, recording each click of the mouse. In education, the use of this data to improve learning is referred to as “learning analytics.”


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
