Harrak, Fatima; Bouchet, François; Luengo, Vanda – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
The analysis of student questions can be used to improve the learning experience for both students and teachers. We investigated questions (N = 6457) asked before the class by first-year medicine/pharmacy students on an online platform, used by professors to prepare for Q&A sessions. Our long-term objectives are to help professors in…

Zheng, Guoguo; Fancsali, Stephen E.; Ritter, Steven; Berman, Susan R. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
If we wish to embed assessment for accountability within instruction, we need to better understand the relative contribution of different types of learner data to statistical models that predict scores and discrete achievement levels on assessments used for accountability purposes. The present work scales up and extends predictive models of math…

O'Connell, Kyle A.; Wostl, Elijah; Crosslin, Matt; Berry, T. Lisa; Grover, James P. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
Historical student data can help elucidate the factors that promote student success in mathematics courses. Herein we use both multiple regression and principal component analyses to explore ten years of historical data from over 20,000 students in an introductory college-level Algebra course in an urban American research university with a diverse…

Brown, Michael; DeMonbrun, R. Matthew; Teasley, Stephanie – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
In this study, we develop and test four measures for conceptualizing the potential impact of co-enrollment in different courses on students' changing risk for academic difficulty and recovery from academic difficulty in a focal course. We offer four predictors, two related to instructional complexity and two related to structural complexity (the…

Gardner, Josh; Brooks, Christopher; Li, Warren – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
In this paper, we evaluate the complete undergraduate co-enrollment network over a decade of education at a large American public university. We provide descriptive and exploratory analyses of the network, demonstrating that the co-enrollment networks evaluated follow power-law degree distributions similar to many other large-scale networks; that…

Hart, Sara A.; Daucourt, Mia; Ganley, Colleen M. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
In this study, we explore student achievement in a semester-long flipped Calculus II course, combining various predictor measures related to student attitudes (math anxiety, math confidence, math interest, math importance) and cognitive skills (spatial skills, approximate number system), as well as student engagement with the online system…

Andrade, Alejandro; Danish, Joshua A.; Maltese, Adam V. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
Interactive learning environments with body-centric technologies lie at the intersection of the design of embodied learning activities and multimodal learning analytics. Sensing technologies can generate large amounts of fine-grained data automatically captured from student movements. Researchers can use these fine-grained data to create a…

Sharma, Kshitij; Chavez-Demoulin, Valérie; Dillenbourg, Pierre – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
The statistics used in education research are based on central trends such as the mean or standard deviation, discarding outliers. This paper adopts another viewpoint that has emerged in statistics, called extreme value theory (EVT). EVT claims that the bulk of normal distribution is comprised mainly of uninteresting variations while the most…

Dvorak, Tomas; Jia, Miaoqing – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2016
This study analyzes the relationship between students' online work habits and academic performance. We utilize data from logs recorded by a course management system (CMS) in two courses at a small liberal arts college in the U.S. Both courses required the completion of a large number of online assignments. We measure three aspects of students'…

Colthorpe, Kay; Zimbardi, Kirsten; Ainscough, Louise; Anderson, Stephen – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
It is well established that a student's capacity to regulate his or her own learning is a key determinant of academic success, suggesting that interventions targeting improvements in self-regulation will have a positive impact on academic performance. However, to evaluate the success of such interventions, the self-regulatory characteristics of…

Schneider, Bertrand; Pea, Roy – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
In a previous study, we found that real-time mutual gaze perception (i.e., being able to see the gaze of your partner in real time on a computer screen while solving a learning task) had a positive effect on student collaboration and learning (Schneider & Pea, 2013). The goals of this paper are (1) to explore a variety of computational…

Wise, Alyssa Friend; Shaffer, David Williamson – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
It is an exhilarating and important time for conducting research on learning, with unprecedented quantities of data available. There is a danger, however, in thinking that with enough data, the numbers speak for themselves. In fact, with larger amounts of data, theory plays an ever-more critical role in analysis. In this introduction to the…

Papamitsiou, Zacharoula; Economides, Anastasios A. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2014
Accurate and early predictions of student performance could significantly affect interventions during teaching and assessment, which gradually could lead to improved learning outcomes. In our research, we seek to identify and formalize temporal parameters as predictors of performance ("temporal learning analytics" or TLA) and examine…

Pardos, Zachary A.; Baker, Ryan S. J. D.; San Pedro, Maria O. C. Z.; Gowda, Sujith M.; Gowda, Supreeth M. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2014
In this paper, we investigate the correspondence between student affect and behavioural engagement in a web-based tutoring platform throughout the school year and learning outcomes at the end of the year on a high-stakes mathematics exam in a manner that is both longitudinal and fine-grained. Affect and behaviour detectors are used to estimate…

Ali, Liaqat; Hatala, Marek; Winne, Phil; Gaševic, Dragan – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2014
This study aims to investigate how the learning strategies and achievement goal orientations of students relate to their academic behaviours and performance in the context of an online learning system. The study also develops and validates a relational model between student learning strategies and achievement goals.
