Yet's solutions drive action across learning organizations.
Featured Case Study
Khan Lab School is an independent school associated with Khan Academy that runs a personalized, mixed-age program with a project-based learning approach.
Because KLS tracks mastery instead of letter grades and groups students by independence level instead of age, a new kind of reporting system is needed to show student progress.
Yet Analytics has built student and teacher facing dashboards that pull data from digital and in-person learning activity to provide a unified view of student progress at KLS.
Teachers, students and parents benefit from real-time, consistent reporting on student progress. Automated reporting creates significant time savings for teachers.
"As more and more schools switch to a blended model and start using
a whole suite of tools, everyone is going to need and want this."

What is DAVE?
If the objective is to analyze, interpret, and visualize micro-level behavior-driven learning, we need a framework for analysis and visualization which aligns with xAPI, xAPI Profiles, and the Total Learning Architecture (TLA). Enter Project DAVE — a framework featuring a suite of prototype analytics algorithms and data visualization templates open source dashboard prototypes for TLA data analytics and visualization open source code, reusable by developers and learning engineers, that is modular and aligned to the capabilities of xAPI & xAPI Profiles and the needs of the TLA.
Project DAVE is funded by the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative at the U.S. Department of Defense.
Through partnerships with leading human capital organizations, the Learning Accelerator aims to transform K-12 education through blended learning on a national scale. As learners utilize content through curated playlists, competency development is automatically tracked and presented back to individual learners, cohort leaders and content providers through role-specific dashboards.
"This work will help learners access training and professional-development content connected directly to their specific needs, across platforms, and to more effectively track and reflect on their learning as they go."
CEO, The Learning Accelerator
The xAPI instrumentation of the InspirED platform provides the 2Revolutions team with the data needed to measure effectiveness, understand usability, and assess the value of content to learners. The collection and utilization of granular engagement data greatly assists their understanding of learner progression, helps them to identify opportunities for intervention, and serves as the foundation for developing learner personas. This xAPI instrumentation enables the collection of high-resolution platform usage analytics that will inform the development roadmap of the InspirED platform itself.
