LinkedIn & Learning Analytics

Forthcoming issue on big data and learning analytics to be released on Nov 3   |    Email Article

Research & Practice in Assessment (RPA) has expanded its social media options to also include LinkedIn. We have created a closed group to continue our discussions surrounding research found within the RPA Journal as well as the Higher Education Assessment Community. If you would like to join this group, or any of the other social media venues, please visit our website, or click on the icons at the bottom of this email.

The forthcoming special issue of RPA focuses on Big Data & Learning Analytics.  Given that the field of higher education is increasingly faced with these two types of data, the issue seeks to collaboratively address the question, “What is the role of big data and learning analytics in higher education assessment?”  Comprised of the following articles, it will be published on November 3, 2014:
