Data used in learning analytics rarely provide strong and clear signals about how learners process content. As a result, learning as a process is not clearly described for learners or for learning scientists. Gasevic, Dawson, and Siemens (2015) urged data be sought that more straightforwardly describe processes in terms of events within learning episodes. They recommended building on Winne’s (1982) characterization of traces — ambient data gathered as learners study that more clearly represent w...

Learners working on major learning projects, such as an undergraduate thesis, frequently engage in information problem solving (IPS). In round-trip IPS, learners set goals and develop a work plan, search for and filter sources, critically analyze and mine key information, and draft and revise a final product. Information problem solving is a prime site for self-regulated learning (SRL) whereby learners formulate and carry out self-designed experiments to improve IPS skills and expand knowledge a...

Learning analytics are often formatted as visualisations developed from traced data collected as students study in online learning environments. Optimal analytics inform and motivate students’ decisions about adaptations that improve their learning. We observe that designs for learning often neglect theories and empirical findings in learning science that explain how students learn. We present six learning analytics that reflect what is known in six areas (we call them cases) of theory and resea...
