Wu, Ting-Ting – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Memorizing English vocabulary is often considered uninteresting, and a lack of motivation exists during learning activities. Moreover, most vocabulary practice systems automatically select words from articles and do not provide integrated model methods for students. Therefore, this study constructed a mobile game-based English vocabulary practice…

Yang, J. C.; Lin, M. Y. D.; Chen, S. Y. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Anxiety plays an influential role in foreign language learning. However, a lack of attention was paid to examining the effects of anxiety levels on learning performance and gaming performance in digital game-based learning. To this end, this study developed a game-based English learning system and investigated how different levels of anxiety…

Liao, Calvin C. Y.; Chang, Wan-Chen; Chan, Tak-Wai – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
We have observed that many computer-supported writing environments based on pedagogical strategies have only been designed to incorporate the cognitive aspects, but motivational aspects should also be included. Hence, we theorize that integrating game-based learning into the writing environment may be a practical approach that can facilitate…

Yeh, Y. -c.; Lin, C. S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Although cultivating creativity is greatly emphasized in elementary school education and that digital games can be a promising tool for improving creativity, little research has been conducted to identify and explore how player-related factors might influence the learning outcomes of digital creativity games. This study identifies 3 individual…

McKenna, Brigid A.; Kopittke, Peter M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Quantifying student engagement with online learning resources on virtual learning environments such as BlackBoard is important in understanding how these technologies enhance the student learning. In the present study, it was examined when, and how often, first-year students accessed lecture recordings, lecture slides, and lecture notes via…

Lee, V. C. S.; Yu, Y. T.; Tang, C. M.; Wong, T. L.; Poon, C. K. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Many students need assistance in debugging to achieve progress when they learn to write computer programs. Face-to-face interactions with individual students to give feedback on their programs, although definitely effective in facilitating their learning, are becoming difficult to achieve with ever-growing class sizes. This paper proposes a novel…

Rodríguez-Aflecht, G.; Jaakkola, T.; Pongsakdi, N.; Hannula-Sormunen, M.; Brezovszky, B.; Lehtinen, E. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The present study focused on 212 fifth graders' situational interest trajectories during an intervention with a digital mathematics game called Number Navigation. Our aims were to explore the development of situational interest whilst playing the game and to investigate the relationship between situational interest and individual math interest.…

Lin, C.-H.; Chiu, C.-H.; Hsu, C.-C.; Wang, T.-I.; Chen, C.-H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This study proposed a computerized inquiry-stage-dependent argumentation assistance and investigated whether this can help improve elementary students' performance in science processes and the construction of quality arguments. Various argumentation assistances were developed and incorporated into each stage of scientific inquiry in a…

Bossavit, B.; Parsons, S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Digital educational games research tends to lack ecological validity by not adequately taking into account the views and perspectives of children and young people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This paper is a pilot study that explores and analyses an academic-based educational game that was co-designed with and for young people with ASD.…

Serrano, M.-Á.; Vidal-Abarca, E.; Ferrer, A. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The use of documents to perform tasks is a continuous task demand in the current knowledge-based society that involves making a series of decisions to self-regulate the use of text information. Low-skilled comprehenders have serious problems monitoring and self-regulating their decisions in these task-oriented reading situations, which has a…

Frank, Barbara; Kluge, Annette – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
In organizations, the assessment of mental abilities is a common way to predict learning success. This paper analyses the effect of general mental ability on skill retention and examines the relationship between refresher interventions and general mental ability in terms of skill retention. Two hundred sixty-six adult participants were trained to…

Davis, K.; Sridharan, H.; Koepke, L.; Singh, S.; Boiko, R. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The current study investigated college students' experiences of a gamified informatics course. We surveyed 139 students aged 18-31 years (M = 20 years, SD = 1.5) enrolled in an undergraduate informatics course focused on social networking technologies. Surveys were conducted at 3 time points during the course (beginning, middle, and end). Overall,…

Krauskopf, K.; Forssell, K. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
In an effort to understand teachers' technology use, recent scholarship has explored the idea of technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPCK or TPACK). Many studies have used self-reports to measure this knowledge (SR TPCK). Several studies have examined the construct validity of these assessments by analysing the internal relationships of…

Çetinkaya, Levent; Sütçü, Selim Soner – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of Facebook and WhatsApp on success in English vocabulary instruction and the learners' opinions about the implementation process. In the study, mixed method model, which combines both quantitative and qualitative data, was used. The success of the students in Facebook, WhatsApp, and control…

Conijn, R.; Van den Beemt, A.; Cuijpers, P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Predicting student performance is a major tool in learning analytics. This study aims to identify how different measures of massive open online course (MOOC) data can be used to identify points of improvement in MOOCs. In the context of MOOCs, student performance is often defined as course completion. However, students could have other learning…
