Providing students with continuous and personalized feedback on their performance is an important part of encouraging self regulated learning.  In this session we will cover some of the latest techniques in Data Science and Cognitive Computing to advance student learning. As part of our higher education platform, for example, we built a set of data visualizations to provide feedback to students on their assignment performance.  Included in the feedback are `nudges' which provide guidance on how students might improve their performance by adjusting when they start or submit assignments. In order to understand what nudges to provide to students, we analyzed historical data from over 1.4 million students on over 27 million assignment submissions to find student performance trends.  We used this analysis and the past and current performance of each student to display nudges relevant for them in their visualizations, highlighting actionable strategies for improving future performance.
