      Description

      Currently the full details of learning analytics models are only available to managers and site administrators, and teachers do not have the option to create or enable models for their own classes. It should be possible for teachers (and eventually, even students) to select from available models, review accuracy calculations, and copy, edit, and create models for their own contexts.

      Anyone whose data is included in a model or about whom a model makes predictions should have the ability to review the accuracy of the model by default. This may also include users who have roles with respect to other users, e.g. mentors or parents.

      Teachers may wish to try variant models (e.g. removing or adding some indicators) and comparing them to the standard models used across the site. This can be especially helpful for teachers who teach multiple instances of a single course, either concurrently or over time, or who teach very large enrollment courses.

      Since processing site-wide models can be computationally expensive, creating a model that uses data outside the contexts visible to a user should generate a request for processing that can be approved by a manager or administrator with appropriate permissions.
