Abstract

While the field of Learning Analytics continues to develop, examples of student-focused projects have been in short supply. This paper will describe the design and implementation of the Learning Analytics Report Card (or LARC), an experimental project undertaken at the University of Edinburgh. The LARC involved postgraduate students as research partners and active participants in their own data analysis, and used data-to-text methods to generate a written textual report. The LARC allowed students to ‘play’ with their own data; choosing what to include or exclude, and when to generate the report. This paper will summarise key findings from the project.
