Feng, Luxi; Lindner, Amanda; Ji, Xuejun Ryan; Malatesha Joshi, R. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
According to the simple view of writing (Berninger, Abbott, Abbott, Graham, & Richards, 2002), the two important components of transcription in writing are handwriting and keyboarding, the third one being spelling. The purpose of this paper is to review the contribution of two writing modes--handwriting and keyboarding to writing performance.…

Kim, Ahyoung Alicia; Lee, Shinhye; Chapman, Mark; Wilmes, Carsten – TESOL Quarterly: A Journal for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages and of Standard English as a Second Dialect, 2019
This study aimed to investigate how Grade 1-2 English language learners (ELLs) differ in their performance on a writing test in two test modes: paper and online. Participants were 139 ELLs in the United States. They completed three writing tasks, representing three test modes: (1) a paper in which students completed their writing using a…

Barkaoui, Khaled – Studies in Second Language Acquisition, 2019
When responding to a writing task, writers spend a significant amount of their time not writing. These periods of physical inactivity, or pauses, during writing provide observable and measurable cues as to when, where, and how long writers halt to plan and/or revise their texts. Consequently, examining writers' pausing patterns can provide…

McDuff, Emeline; Lanovaz, Marc J.; Morin, Diane; Vona, Mélissa; Kheloufi, Yasmine; Giannakakos, Antonia R. – Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 2019
Background: Due to deficits in adaptive and cognitive functioning, productivity may pose challenges for individuals with intellectual disability in the workplace. Method: Using a changing-criterion embedded in a multiple baseline across participants design, we examined the effects of differential reinforcement of high rates of behaviour (DRH) on…

Young, Jay R.; Davies, Randall S.; Jenkins, Jeffrey L.; Pfleger, Isaac – Computers in the Schools, 2019
This study examined the potential use of keystroke dynamics to create keyprints (typing fingerprints) to authenticate individuals in online courses. Previous studies have determined that keystroke typing patterns are unique; in addition to replicating these findings, this study explored best practices for implementing keyprint signatures in…

Sinharay, Sandip; Zhang, Mo; Deane, Paul – Applied Measurement in Education, 2019
Analysis of keystroke logging data is of increasing interest, as evident from a substantial amount of recent research on the topic. Some of the research on keystroke logging data has focused on the prediction of essay scores from keystroke logging features, but linear regression is the only prediction method that has been used in this research.…

Malekian, Donia; Bailey, James; Kennedy, Gregor; de Barba, Paula; Nawaz, Sadia – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2019
This work aims to characterize students' writing processes using keystroke logs and understand how the extracted characteristics influence the text quality at specific moments of writing. Earlier works have proposed predictive models characterizing students' writing processes and mainly rely on distribution-based measures of pauses obtained from…

Conijn, Rianne; Roeser, Jens; van Zaanen, Menno – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Keystroke logging is used to automatically record writers' unfolding typing process and to get insight into moments when they struggle composing text. However, it is not clear which and how features from the keystroke log map to higher-level cognitive processes, such as planning and revision. This study aims to investigate the sensitivity of…

Trezise, Kelly; Ryan, Tracii; de Barba, Paula; Kennedy, Gregor – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
Rural teachers and educators are increasingly called upon to build partnerships with families who use languages other than English in the home (US DOE, 2016). This is equally true for rural schools, where the number of multilingual families is small, and the language and cultural backgrounds of students differs from those of school. This article…

Ullah, Abrar; Xiao, Hannan; Barker, Trevor – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
Online examinations are an integral component of online learning environments and research studies have identified academic dishonesty as a critical threat to the credibility of such examinations. Academic dishonesty exists in many forms. Collusion is seen as a major security threat, wherein a student invites a third party for help or to…

Guo, Hongwen; Zhang, Mo; Deane, Paul; Bennett, Randy E. – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2019
We used an unobtrusive approach, keystroke logging, to examine students' cognitive states during essay writing. Based on data contained in the logs, we classified writing process data into three states: text production, long pause, and editing. We used semi-Markov processes to model the sequences of writing states and compared the state transition…

Zhang, Mo; Bennett, Randy E.; Deane, Paul; van Rijn, Peter W. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2019
This study compared gender groups on the processes used in writing essays in an online assessment. Middle-school students from four grades responded to essays in two persuasive subgenres, argumentation and policy recommendation. Writing processes were inferred from four indicators extracted from students' keystroke logs. In comparison to males, on…

Lang, David; Stenhaug, Ben; Kizilcec, Rene – Grantee Submission, 2019
This research evaluates the psychometric properties of short-answer response items under a variety of grading rules in the context of a mobile learning platform in Africa. This work has three main findings. First, we introduce the concept of a differential device function (DDF), a type of differential item function that stems from the device a…

Galbraith, David; Vedder, Ineke – Studies in Second Language Acquisition, 2019
This special issue is devoted to describing and evaluating new methods for analyzing online writing processes in a second language (L2). As all the contributors have stated, the aim is to identify the cognitive processes underlying writing. The ultimate aim is to employ observations and experimental manipulations of these processes to build…

Datchuk, Shawn M.; Smith, Sydra; Wang, Lanqi – Journal of Special Education Technology, 2019
Elementary students are expected to engage in written expression that is handwritten and typed. One critical skill of written expression is sentence construction: the composition of multiple words that follow rules of semantics and syntax. Unfortunately, many students with disabilities struggle to successfully handwrite or type complete sentences.…
