KS

Teachers have allways made notes and talked to each other to map the students' level, adapt assignments and give grades. But what happens when all this information is created, stored and exchanged digitally? In the KS project, they want to analyze students' data from various digital learning tools, to support the teachers in the assessment work and to adapt the teaching better to the students' individual level.

The municipal sector's organization, KS, is behind the project AVT2 together with the Education Agency in Oslo and the Center for Science of Learning & Technology (SLATE) at UiB. They are developing the Mitt Fagkart application. In it, data from different learning tools the students use will be collected. It should help the teacher to give assignments as best as possible adapted to the students' level, and it should be supportive of assessments and grading.

KS wants to set the standard

Many interesting questions will be raised, such as what and how much data can be used to build student profiles? What about students' right to delete data and established profiles? How long can they be stored, and who will see them? Can student data from a school year be used the next school year by a new teacher to get an overview of the class?
 
The project will, among other things, present opportunities and shed light on both fundamental and practical questions the education sector faces when it comes to the use of students' activity data in learning analysis.
 
- We therefore hope that our participation in the sandbox will be able to help clarify and give advice on this, and help to put learning analysis in schools on the national agenda, says department director and head of the steering group for the project, Asbjørn Finstad.
