Technology for Analysis of Student Interactions With Complex Programs. Final Report for Period January 1972-February 1973.
Lukas, George; Feurzeig, Wallace
A description is provided of a computer system designed to aid in the analysis of student programing work. The first section of the report consists of an overview and user's guide. In it, the system input is described in terms of a "dribble file" which records all student inputs generated; also an introduction is given to the aids developed for monitoring and analyzing student programing activities. The next section offers a detailed description of the system, including full program documentation, while the final two parts deal with the standard analysis packages developed to facilitate applications and with examples of system use. Details are provided on the manner in which users can scan structures derived from the "dribble files", choosing data of interest, form of presentation, and level of interpretation and moving across these freely in time. General facilities for developing new analysis procedures are described and a technical description of the system's LOGO language is appended. (Author)
