Report: Is Viewing Learning Analytics the Same as Checking Your ‘Likes’? 87% of College Students Perform Better with Access to Immediate Feedback on Performance, New Research Finds

According to McGraw-Hill Education in their report “The Impact of Technology on College Student Study Habits,” 87% in a survey of over 2,600 college students report that having access to data analytics of their academic performance can positively impact their learning experience. This third report in an annual series conducted by McGraw-Hill Education and fielded by Hanover Research also highlighted the following findings:

  • Nearly two-thirds of students who already use data analytics state that the impact on their academic performance is “very positive” or “extremely positive.”
  • 75% of students using adaptive learning technology–where computers manage the allocation of instructional resources to students according to their individual needs–report that it is “very helpful” or “extremely helpful” in aiding their ability to retain new concepts.
