Learning Data and Analytics
Together we are helping teachers and students
make the most of innovative products.
The IMS community is committed to a connected data ecosystem that gets the right information to the right person at the right time. A connected data ecosystem means that your edtech becomes more valuable. Faculty and students gain insights that improve teaching and learning. Suppliers gain insights that enable product improvement. Institutions gain insights about product usage and performance.
A data-ready ecosystem to inform, engage,
and create learning opportunities.
Sharing educational data across an institutional ecosystem gives teachers and students the ability to assess progress and fill gaps while also enabling data analytics that reveals systemic improvement opportunities. You get the intel to make adjustments to curriculum, advising, student success programming, and make smarter edtech purchases to scale your IT and academic technology infrastructure.
Get transparency on how students are learning and the power to pinpoint intervention early for individual learners.
Determine how student success initiatives are performing and evaluate ROI on technology investments to achieve your mission.
Provide maximum educational value in a larger data-rich ecosystem without the cost of numerous custom integrations.

Data-ready means everyone can do better.
When edtech products are built with IMS standards, it gives faculty, administrators, and suppliers real-time data access and the power to securely exchange rosters and grades, measure learning activity, and protect student privacy.
It fits together.
There's enough to juggle these days without having to figure out if a new application will plug-and-play with the rest of your digital ecosystem. Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) allows courseware and learning tools from different vendors to work together from the start.
Exchange roster information, grades, and assessment data in a snap.
Your student information system (SIS) holds a wealth of information about courses and classes, enrollments and grades, and so much more. The IMS community sets the standard for sharing this critical data securely and without the manual upload to your digital ecosystem.
The automatic and reliable exchange of roster and grade data between your SIS and other learning apps and digital tools frees your staff up to focus on the important things—teaching and learning.
Understanding engagement leads to better learning outcomes.
IMS Caliper Analytics captures and shares data on student activities in learning apps and software—giving teachers and developers a way to measure and glean insights on how students engage with digital tools. Learn more here.
It's about privacy. We've got you covered.
The ability to capture and analyze data comes with responsibility. IMS members believe in ethically safeguarding student data and helping you make sure your edtech suppliers do too.
We facilitate an app vetting process with IMS TrustEd Apps to ensure the usage and sharing of data meet the IMS member-established criteria—relieving educators from that time-consuming task. Read the press release.
Higher education leaders participating in the IMS Learning Data & Analytics Innovation Leadership Network outlined eight key principles for higher education institutions to consider reflecting best practices in student data stewardship and governance.
