The assessment of students’ performance in online learning environments is a challenging and demanding task for the teachers. Moodle offers several assessment tools. This paper presents a new assessment tool, called Learning Analytics Enriched Rubric (LAe-R). LAe-R is based on the concept of assessment rubrics which is a very popular assessment technique in education. LAe-R contains “enriched” criteria and grading levels that are associated to data extracted from the analysis of learners’ interaction and learning behavior in an e-learning environment. LAe-R has been developed as a plug-in for the Moodle learning management system. The findings of a case study showed that LAe-R is a very usable tool that is highly appreciated by teachers and students.
