Whitney, Michael; Lipford, Heather Richter; Chu, Bill; Thomas, Tyler – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2018
Many of the software security vulnerabilities that people face today can be remediated through secure coding practices. A critical step toward the practice of secure coding is ensuring that our computing students are educated on these practices. We argue that secure coding education needs to be included across a computing curriculum. We are…

MacLeod, Jason; Yang, Harrison Hao; Zhu, Sha; Shi, Yinghui – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2018
In an effort to address student engagement challenges, much research has explored student-to-student connected classroom climate (CCC). Research positively associates CCC to the benefits of student integration, learning, and retention in face-to-face environments. However, few studies have examined CCC in computer-mediated environments. This study…

Seifried, Eva; Lenhard, Wolfgang; Spinath, Birgit – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2017
Writing essays and receiving feedback can be useful for fostering students' learning and motivation. When faced with large class sizes, it is desirable to identify students who might particularly benefit from feedback. In this article, we tested the potential of Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) for identifying poor essays. A total of 14 teaching…

Chen, Ruey-Shin; Liu, I-Fan – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2017
Currently, e-learning systems are being widely used in all stages of education. However, it is difficult for school administrators to accurately assess the actual usage performance of a new system, especially when an organization wishes to update the system for users from different backgrounds using new devices such as smartphones. To allow school…

Wee, Mee-Chin; Abrizah, A.; Por, Lip Yee – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2012
A CMI-based online forum is designed to address the need for a system to manage students' online participation. The proposed system may reduce the time required to manage online participation. The system was evaluated by a total of 64 students enrolled in an academic semester. The evaluation has two objectives. The first was to determine the…

Seifried, Eva; Lenhard, Wolfgang; Baier, Herbert; Spinath, Birgit – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2012
This study investigates the potential of a software tool based on Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA; Landauer, McNamara, Dennis, & Kintsch, 2007) to automatically evaluate complex German texts. A sample of N = 94 German university students provided written answers to questions that involved a high amount of analytical reasoning and evaluation.…

Samuel, Roy David; Kim, Chanmin; Johnson, Tristan E. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2011
The transition from classroom instruction to e-learning raises pedagogical challenges for university instructors. A controlled integration of e-learning tools into classroom instruction may offer learners tangible benefits and improved effectiveness. This design-based research (DBR) study engaged students in e-learning activities integrated into…
