Alario-Hoyos, Carlos; Pérez-Sanagustin, Mar; Delgado-Kloos, Carlos; Parada G., Hugo A.; Muñoz-Organero, Mario – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2014
This paper presents an in-depth empirical analysis of a nine-week MOOC. This analysis provides novel results regarding participants' profiles and use of built-in and external social tools. The results served to detect seven participants' patterns and conclude that the forum was the social tool preferred to contribute to the MOOC.

Savalei, Victoria; Bentler, Peter M. – Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2005
This article proposes a new approach to the statistical analysis of pairwisepresent covariance structure data. The estimator is based on maximizing the complete data likelihood function, and the associated test statistic and standard errors are corrected for misspecification using Satorra-Bentler corrections. A Monte Carlo study was conducted to…
