Analytics is a topic of growing interest in the research communities. INFORMS defined analytics as the scientific process of transforming data into insights with the purpose of making better decisions. Being grounded on the area of decision support systems, the area of analytics has got a vast range of applications. One important application concerns educational environments, where the three types of analytics, namely, descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive are being applied.
We can say that one of the main applications is related to assessment, in order to improve its quality. The use of LMS where the activity of the students’ can be easily accessed, potentiated the use of analytics to understand their route during the learning process, thus they can be helped to improve during that process. Also, the use of analytics from the school’s managers, can help them to take better decisions.
Authors are welcome to submit papers, discuss theory or research issues, demonstrate tools:
- Analytics in e-assessment applications
- Analytics in e-learning environments
