Gaševic, Dragan; Jovanovic, Jelena; Pardo, Abelardo; Dawson, Shane – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
The use of analytic methods for extracting learning strategies from trace data has attracted considerable attention in the literature. However, there is a paucity of research examining any association between learning strategies extracted from trace data and responses to well-established self-report instruments and performance scores. This paper…

Trigwell, Keith; Ellis, Robert A.; Han, Feifei – Studies in Higher Education, 2012
Quantitative analyses conducted on the self-reports of first year university students suggest that there is a relationship between the ways they emotionally experience their course and the approach they take to the learning of that course. Students who more strongly experience positive emotions, such as hope and pride, and more weakly experience…

Everaert, Patricia; Opdecam, Evelien; Maussen, Sophie – Accounting Education, 2017
Previous literature calls for further investigation in terms of precedents and consequences of learning approaches (deep learning and surface learning). Motivation as precedent and time spent and academic performance as consequences are addressed in this paper. The study is administered in a first-year undergraduate course. Results show that the…

Ellis, Robert A.; Han, Feifei; Pardo, Abelardo – Educational Technology & Society, 2017
The field of education technology is embracing a use of learning analytics to improve student experiences of learning. Along with exponential growth in this area is an increasing concern of the interpretability of the analytics from the student experience and what they can tell us about learning. This study offers a way to address some of the…

Golightly, Aubrey; Raath, Schalk – Journal of Geography, 2015
In South Africa, geography education students' approach to deep learning has received little attention. Therefore the purpose of this one-shot experimental case study was to evaluate the extent to which first-year geography education students used deep or surface learning in an embedded problem-based learning (PBL) format. The researchers measured…

Mogashana, Disaapele; Case, Jennifer M.; Marshall, Delia – Studies in Higher Education, 2012
Student learning inventories are used by both researchers and educators as tools to identify "at risk" students. This article critically interrogates the results of one of these inventories, the 18-item Approaches to Learning and Studying Inventory. In-depth interviews were held with a purposive sample of 10 first-year engineering…
