In this talk, Professor Chaoli Wang will present the inclusive learning analytics effort his team has been collaborating with Notre Dame Learning to identify and reduce the academic achievement gaps in college-level introductory courses.

Two visual analytics tools will be introduced:

  • CCVis, designed to analyse the course clickstream data and explore student online learning behaviours, and
  • PerformanceVis, developed to analyse student admission and course performance data and investigate homework and exam question design.

Professor Wang will also briefly discuss other works and future directions for this research effort.
