A Interesting Look at MOOC Completion Rates

Kevin Carey from EdCentral discusses MOOC completion rates.  He computes the graduation rate from Penn (7%) in the same way as MOOC completion rates (4%)--it all depends on what student population you are using as the denominator.

Daphne Koller, Andrew Ng, Chuong Do, and Zhenghao Chen discuss learner intent in a June 2013 article in EDUCAUSE Online.  They mention that not only do you need to calculate retention/completion differently than traditional courses, but a number of factors--the type of assignments, etc.--are also a factor.
