Cook, Connor; Olney, Andrew M.; Kelly, Sean; D'Mello, Sidney K. – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2018
Automatic assessment of the quality of classroom discourse can have a transformative effect on research and practice on improving teaching effectiveness. We improve on a previous automated method to measure teacher authentic questions -- open-ended questions without pre-scripted responses that predict student achievement growth -- using classroom…

Christensen, Rhonda; Knezek, Gerald – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2016
Mobile learning readiness as a new aspect of technology integration for classroom teachers is confirmed through the findings of this study to be significantly aligned with well-established measures based on older information technologies. The Mobile Learning Readiness Survey (MLRS) generally exhibits the desirable properties of step-wise increases…

Cutumisu, Maria; Schwartz, Daniel L. – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2016
This paper presents a novel examination of the impact of students' feedback choices and performance on their feedback memory. An empirical study was designed to collect the choices to seek critical feedback from a hundred and six Grade 8 middle-school students via Posterlet, a digital assessment game in which students design posters. Upon…

Slater, Stefan; Baker, Ryan; Ocumpaugh, Jaclyn; Inventado, Paul; Scupelli, Peter; Heffernan, Neil – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2016
The creation of crowd-sourced content in learning systems is a powerful method for adapting learning systems to the needs of a range of teachers in a range of domains, but the quality of this content can vary. This study explores linguistic differences in teacher-created problem content in ASSISTments using a combination of discovery with models…

Lazarev, Valeriy; Newman, Denis – Empirical Education Inc., 2015
Classroom observation is an important component of teacher evaluation systems. Most states are implementing systems that assign a composite score to each teacher based on weights assigned to several different measures. Policy discussions often address this weighting, with many states adopting formulas with high weights for the summative scores…

Shute, Valerie J.; Moore, Gregory R.; Wang, Lubin – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2015
We are using stealth assessment, embedded in "Plants vs. Zombies 2," to measure middle-school students' problem solving skills. This project started by developing a problem solving competency model based on a thorough review of the literature. Next, we identified relevant in-game indicators that would provide evidence about students'…

Cutumisu, Maria; Chin, Doris B.; Schwartz, Daniel L. – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2014
We introduce an educational game-based assessment that measures the choices students make while learning. We present Posterlet, a game designed to assess students' choices to seek negative feedback and to revise, in which students learn graphical design principles while creating posters. We validate our game-based assessment approach with three…
