The study is a descriptive study research design to investigate learning analytics for students’ academic performance in Faculty of Education, University of Port Harcourt. The Population comprised all Year 1 students from Faculty of Education with 8 departments, University of Port Harcourt offering Instructional Technology (EDU 102.2). A sample size of 300 students was used from six departments from Faculty of Education, University of Port Harcourt. Stratified and purposive sampling techniques were used for the study. The instrument used to collect data from respondents was a structured questionnaire entitled Learning Analytics for students’ academic performance in Faculty of Education, University of Port Harcourt (LASAPFEUPH) with 22 items. To ensure validity, the instrument designed by the researcher was given to experts in the field of Educational Technology and measurement and evaluation. This was done to help the researchers assess the quality of each item in the context of clarity, ambiguity and generality of the items. Their various comments and assessment gave the researcher the conviction that the instrument is appropriate and valid for the research. To determine the reliability of the instrument, test-re-test was applied; 20 copies of the instrument were administered on some students at two different occasions within three weeks. Their responses to the questionnaire item in the two separate responses were correlated to attain the reliability coefficient of 0.86. The responses from the questionnaire in Section B were weighted on the four-point Likert type scale: Strongly Agreed, Agreed, Disagreed, and Strongly Disagreed. Data obtained were analysed using Mean, Standard Deviation and Chi-Square.
