Peake, Christian; Diaz, Alicia; Artiles, Ceferino – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2017
This study examined the relationship and degree of predictability that the fluency of writing the alphabet from memory and the selection of allographs have on measures of fluency and accuracy of spelling in a free-writing sentence task when keyboarding. The "Test Estandarizado para la Evaluación de la Escritura con Teclado"…

Guo, Hongwen; Deane, Paul D.; van Rijn, Peter W.; Zhang, Mo; Bennett, Randy E. – Journal of Educational Measurement, 2018
The goal of this study is to model pauses extracted from writing keystroke logs as a way of characterizing the processes students use in essay composition. Low-level timing data were modeled, the interkey interval and its subtype, the intraword duration, thought to reflect processes associated with keyboarding skills and composition fluency.…

Bälter, Olle; Zimmaro, Dawn – Interactive Learning Environments, 2018
It is challenging for students to plan their work sessions in online environments, as it is very difficult to make estimates on how much material there is to cover. In order to simplify this estimation, we have extended the Keystroke-level analysis model with individual reading speed of text, figures, and questions. This was used to estimate how…

Kapperman, Gaylen; Koster, Elizabeth; Burman, Rachel – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2018
In this article, the authors contend that the effectiveness in studying foreign languages by students who are blind can be greatly increased with the use of a properly configured screen reader, Job Access With Speech (JAWS), and a braille display. They assert foreign language instruction should not be limited to auditory input from an instructor…

Mackey, Allyson P.; Park, Anne T.; Robinson, Sydney T.; Gabrieli, John D. E. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
Cognitive skills are associated with academic performance, but little is known about how to improve these skills in the classroom. Here, we present the results of a pilot study in which teachers were trained to engage students in cognitive skill practice through playing games. Fifth-grade students at an experimental charter school were randomly…

Ling, Guangming – Language Assessment Quarterly, 2017
To investigate whether the type of keyboard used in exams introduces any construct-irrelevant variance to the TOEFL iBT Writing scores, we surveyed 17,040 TOEFL iBT examinees from 24 countries on their keyboard-related perceptions and preferences and analyzed the survey responses together with their test scores. Results suggest that controlling…

Dadey, Nathan; Lyons, Susan; DePascale, Charles – Applied Measurement in Education, 2018
Evidence of comparability is generally needed whenever there are variations in the conditions of an assessment administration, including variations introduced by the administration of an assessment on multiple digital devices (e.g., tablet, laptop, desktop). This article is meant to provide a comprehensive examination of issues relevant to the…

Casey, Kevin – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
Learning analytics offers insights into student behaviour and the potential to detect poor performers before they fail exams. If the activity is primarily online (for example computer programming), a wealth of low-level data can be made available that allows unprecedented accuracy in predicting which students will pass or fail. In this paper, we…

Nikolaeva, Yuliya S.; Pak, Nikolay I. – Journal of Social Studies Education Research, 2017
The relevance of the research is due to the need of taking into account the learners' cognitive characteristics in the educational process. Knowing the personal qualities of people is also important when choosing an occupation or employment. This is why the paper is aimed at describing the opportunities of the newest Web and mobile applications…

Van Der Steen, Steffie; Samuelson, Dianne; Thomson, Jennifer M. – Written Communication, 2017
This study addresses the current debate about the beneficial effects of text processing software on students with different working memory (WM) during the process of academic writing, especially with regard to the ability to display higher-level conceptual thinking. A total of 54 graduate students (15 male, 39 female) wrote one essay by hand and…

Van Hove, Stephanie; Vanderhoven, Ellen; Cornillie, Frederik – Comunicar: Media Education Research Journal, 2017
Mobile technologies are increasingly finding their way into classroom practice. While these technologies can create opportunities that may facilitate learning, including the learning of a second or foreign language (L2), the full potential of these new media often remains underexploited. A case in point concerns tablet applications for language…
