Title:Fudging the Data: Student Responses to Data Use in the LMS
Author(s):Kammer, Jenna
Subject(s):information/computing ethics
Abstract:In a learning management system (LMS), students leave a trail of data that they produce in a course. Learning management systems are equipped with visualizations that provide the instructor with information about the student’s activity or behavior. This poster will present initial findings from an exploratory study that tells the story of what these students know, feel and understand about how their data is used by instructors in learning environments. In this pilot study, five students participated in semi-structured interviews and narrative writing to describe their impression of how and why instructors would use student data in teaching and learning. The interviews and narratives were coded for patterns using an ethical reasoning framework. Initial findings indicate that while these students think it is fair for instructors to use their data for instructional purposes, it may affect how they behave in the learning management system.
