We were pleased to have Geoffrey Edlund and Tania Fernado from The University of Melbourne present at RMIT University on the 3rd of June. In this practical workshop Geoffrey and Tania took us through a hands-on example of how to work with student data. They demonstrated how to make use of data by using tools such as Excel. They showed us how to run and interpret correlations, regressions and manovas in a very simple way.
Geoffrey and Tania also provided some interesting insights into how to make predictions of student performance based on data, such as ATAR score, number of online posts and number of completed online quizzes. They showed us how useful data can be in understanding student learning behaviour as well as supporting students and teachers.
