Learning Analytics for Self-Regulated Learning

Philip H. Winne


The Winne-Hadwin model of self-regulated learning (SRL), elaborated by Winne’s model of cognitive operations and motivation, provides a framework for conceptualizing key issues concerning kinds of data and analyses of data for generating learning analytics about SRL. Trace data are recommended as observable indicators that support valid inferences about metacognitive monitoring and metacognitive control constituting SRL. Characteristics of instrumentation are described for gathering ambient trace data via software learners use to carry out everyday studying. Critical issues are discussed: what to trace about SRL, attributes of instrumentation for gathering ambient trace data, computational issues arising when analyzing trace data alongside complementary data, scheduling and delivering learning analytics, and kinds of information to convey in learning analytics intended to support productive SRL.
