Both gaming the system (taking advantage of the system's feedback and help to succeed in the tutor without learning the material) and being off-task (engaging in behavior that does not involve the system or the learning task) have been previously shown to be associated with poorer learning. In this paper we investigate two hypotheses about the mechanisms(More)
In this paper, we study the relationship between goal orientation within a science inquiry learning environment for middle school students and carelessness, i.e., not demonstrating an inquiry skill despite knowing it. Carelessness is measured based on a machine-learned model. We find, surprisingly, that carelessness is higher for students with strong(More)
In recent years, student modeling has been extended from predicting future student performance on the skills being learned in a tutor to predicting a student's preparation for future learning (PFL). These methods have predicted PFL from a combination of features of students' behaviors related to meta-cognition. However, these models have achieved only(More)
The purpose of this study is to empirically reveal strategies of students' organization of learning-related digital materials within an online personal information archive. Research population included 518 students who utilized the personal Web space allocated to them on the university servers for archiving information items, and data describing their(More)
In today's job market, computer skills are part of the prerequisites for many jobs. In this paper, we report on a study of readiness to work with computers (the dependent variable) among unemployed women (N=54) after participating in a unique training focused on computer skills and empowerment. Associations were explored between this variable and 17(More)
Teacher-student interactions are key to most school-taught lessons. We present a new approach to studying these interactions; this approach is based on a fine-grained data collection, using quantitative field observations (QFOs), which relies on a well-established theoretical framework. The data collected can be analyzed in various methods to address(More)
In recent years, schools have added cyber security to their computer science curricula. While doing so, existing teachers are trained with the new material. In this study we explore differences in teachers' and students' learning of cyber security, implementing a multi-way, data-driven approach by comparing measures of software quality and security.
