Chico State “Analytics in Process” is published in EDUCAUSE Review. Read the full EDUCAUSE article online.
(Chico State University) has been analyzing how students use its learning management system (LMS) since 2003 to demonstrate usage and growth in faculty adoption. These reports answered questions about institution-wide usage, but didn't answer some major questions that we wanted to address, such as how to evaluate the effectiveness of professional development programs on student achievement and identify areas in courses for improvement. We therefore launched a pilot project to address two key questions:
- What is the relationship between LMS usage and student academic achievement?
- How do student characteristics — such as gender, race/ethnicity, family income, and previous academic achievement — affect this relationship?
