Educational Reports That Scale across Users and Data
Rolleston, Rob; Howe, Richard; Sprague, Mary Ann
International Educational Data Mining Society, Paper presented at the International Conference on Educational Data Mining (EDM) (8th, Madrid, Spain, Jun 26-29, 2015)
The field of education is undergoing fundamental change with the growing use of data. Fine-scale data collection at the item-response level is now possible. Xerox has developed a system that bridges the paper-to-digital divide by providing the well-established and easy-to-use paper interface to students, but digitizes the responses for scoring, validating, reporting, and managing data using a range of digital technologies. The Ignite™ system supports written responses, shading, connecting lines, multiple choice selections, and other question types. For some users, monitoring is at a very fine-grain level in both time and skill, while for others the data is used for more summative evaluations and strategic planning; one users' details may be another user's overview. All the reports presented in this document use the same basic atomic data elements and associated meta-data. The hierarchical nature of the organization of users requires that these atomic elements be combined in different ways for specialized visual representations, dependent upon the needs of the user.
