Porter, Tenelle; Molina, Diego Catalán; Blackwell, Lisa; Roberts, Sylvia; Quirk, Abigail; Duckworth, Angela L.; Trzesniewski, Kali – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2020
Mastery behaviours -- seeking out challenging tasks and continuing to work on them despite difficulties -- are integral to achievement but difficult to measure with precision. The current study reports on the development and validation of the computer-based persistence, effort, resilience, and challenge-seeking (PERC) task in two demographically…

Rau, Martina A. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
STEM instruction often uses visual representations. To benefit from these, students need to understand how representations show domain-relevant concepts. Yet, this is difficult for students. Prior research shows that physical representations (objects that students manipulate by hand) and virtual representations (objects on a computer screen that…

Nagy, Robin – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2016
There is an urgent need for our educational system to shift assessment regimes from a narrow, high-stakes focus on grades, to more holistic definitions that value the qualities that lifelong learners will need. The challenge for learning analytics in this context is to deliver actionable assessments of these hard-to-quantify qualities, valued by…

Hillaire, Garron; Rappolt-Schlichtmann, Gabrielle; Ducharme, Kim – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2016
Prototype work can support the creation of data visualizations throughout the research and development process through paper prototypes with sketching, designed prototypes with graphic design tools, and functional prototypes to explore how the implementation will work. One challenging aspect of data visualization work is coordinating the expertise…

Martin, Caitlin K.; Nacu, Denise; Pinkard, Nichole – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2016
Online environments can cultivate what have been referred to as 21st century skills and capabilities, as youth contribute, pursue, share, and interact around work and ideas. Such environments also hold great potential for addressing digital divides related to the development of such skills by connecting youth in areas with fewer resources and…

Papamitsiou, Zacharoula; Economides, Anastasios A. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2014
Accurate and early predictions of student performance could significantly affect interventions during teaching and assessment, which gradually could lead to improved learning outcomes. In our research, we seek to identify and formalize temporal parameters as predictors of performance ("temporal learning analytics" or TLA) and examine…
