Validity Validation of algorithms and metrics How does an organisation validate its algorithms and metrics? 2. Ownership and control Control of analytics processes Who in the institution decides how analytics are to be created and used? 3. Awareness Student awareness of data collection What should students be told about the data that is being collected about them? 4. Consent and opting out Right to opt out Does a student have the right to opt out of data collection and analysis of their learning activities? Jisc Effective Learning Analytics blog:
  24. 24. Area Example issue Question 5. Student access Student access to their data To what extent should students be able to access the data held about them? 6. Privacy Access to employers Under what circumstances would it be appropriate to give employers access to analytics on students? 7. Action Triage How does an institution allocate resources for learning analytics appropriately for learners with different requirements? 8. Adverse impact Oversimplification How can institutions avoid overly simplistic metrics and decision making which ignore personal circumstances? 9. Stewardship Right to be forgotten Can all data regarding an individual except that necessary for statutory purposes be deleted?
