This report on the use of learning analytics dashboards (LAD) is based on a review of research reports and Google search results on the topic. Not surprisingly, the use of LAD continues to increase. However, "(LAD) it provides predictions which are not clearly translated into pedagogical actions; and the possibility of self-regulated learning and game-based learning are not capitalized upon." Instead, the results are being used to highlight inequality and inclusiveness, and their use as well is raising questions about data ownership and reuse. It would be interesting to ask why the research into LAD went in this direction but the authors don't speculate.
