This article provides an overview of the potential for learning analytics tools to help assess emergency medicine residents. The authors situate medical learning analytics within the context of competency-based education while providing suggestions for potential areas for implementation of these techniques into resident evaluation. Authors are careful to note the data inputs, database creation and data analysis potentially performed by learning analytic techniques “should be driven by both evidence and theory.”
