Overview:

Use cases, interventions, data standards and capacity for achieving payback on the investment in analytics by educational institutions are evolving rapidly. However, are the myriad products in the edtech ecosystem designed to work together to support emerging practice? The goal of this Summit is to assess the progress that HED institutions and K-12 districts are making in terms of effective analytics approaches, and to further IMS Global's plans to enable a high value analytics ecosystem. Key objectives for this one-day Summit include:

  • Review key perspectives on the requirements and techniques driving education sector analytics to enable academic transformation
  • Share specific, high value use cases for analytics to impact learning
  • Build momentum for a guiding framework for actionable and impactful analytics to guide the IMS analytics standards development and support institutional community adoption activities
