International Educational Data Mining Society, Paper presented at the International Conference on Educational Data Mining (EDM) (5th, Chania, Greece, Jun 19-21, 2012)
In this paper we examine the collaborative performance of undergraduate engineering students who used shared project documents (Wikis, Google documents) and a software version control system (SVN) to support project collaboration. We present an initial implementation of TeamAnalytics, an instructional tool that facilitates the analyses of the student collaboration process by creating dynamic summaries of team member contributions over time in. Document content is processed using machine learning techniques. We validated the summary's effectiveness using a questionnaire given to instructors and team managers. Team managers indicated that summaries of student contribution to coding activities influenced their evaluation and coordination of team projects. (Contains 7 figures and 5 tables.)
