Hewson, Claire; Charlton, John P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The use of e-assessment methods raises important concerns regarding the reliability and validity of these methods. Potential threats to validity include mode effects and the possible influence of computer-related attitudes. Although numerous studies have now investigated the validity of online assessments in noncourse-based contexts, few studies…

Papadopoulos, Pantelis M.; Natsis, Antonis; Obwegeser, Nikolaus; Weinberger, Armin – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The aim of the present study (n = 113) was to examine how (objective and subjective) information on peers' preparation, confidence, and past performance can support students in answering correctly in audience response systems (aka clickers). The result analysis shows that in the "challenging" questions, in which answers diverged,…

Wu, Shaoqun; Fitzgerald, Alannah; Yu, Alex; Witten, Ian – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Learning collocations is one of the most challenging aspects of language learning as there are literally hundreds of thousands of possibilities for combining words. Corpus consultation with concordancers has been recognized in the literature as an established way for language learners to study and explore collocations at their own pace and in…

Barth, Ingrid; Spector-Cohen, Elana; Sitman, Rosalie; Jiang, Guhuai; Liu, Fang; Xu, Yan – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Although open educational resources (OERs) can help bridge high school-university vocabulary gaps, central questions remain unanswered regarding effective design that enables students to go beyond the "small chunks" that typically characterize vocabulary learning in mobile learning environments (MLEs). This bi-national study adopted a…

Caruso, Marinella; Fraschini, Nicola; Kuuse, Sabine – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Feedback is one of the most important influences on second language learning. While much research has been undertaken in the field of corrective feedback, the study of student engagement with feedback in languages remains understudied. This article addresses the need for more interactive, effective and time-saving feedback, achieving more student…
