Abstract: This paper reports on the design and implementation of several student- and teacher-facing learning analytics representations within a blended learning community curriculum for Grade 12 Biology. Using a custom designed technology environment called CKBiology, these representations captured the real-time progress of the learning community at three levels of granularity: Individual students, small groups, and whole class. Our results focus on the perspectives of students and teachers, triangulating data from a student questionnaire, teacher interview, and CKBiology log files to identify how different representations of progress contributed to awareness, motivation, and the overall practices of the learning community. Grounded in the theoretical model of Knowledge Community and Inquiry, this work seeks to strengthen connections between learning analytics research and the learning sciences.
