Interest in temporal analytics|analytics that probe tempo- ral aspects of learning so as to gain insights into the processes through which learning occurs|continues to grow. The re- lationships of temporal patterns to learning outcomes is a central area of interest. However, while the literature on temporal analyses is developing, there has been less consid- eration of the methods by which temporal analyses might be translated to actionable insights and thus, put into use in educational practice. Emerging temporal analysis tech- niques present both theoretical and practical challenges for producing and interpreting results. Synergetic actions are needed in order to support practitioners.
