Epistemic Network Analysis: A Prototype for 21st-Century Assessment of Learning
It is argued that one way to address the challenge of assessment in new media learning environments by systematically linking models of understanding, observable actions, and evaluation rubrics to provide evidence of learning is through evidence-centered design.
Press Play: Designing an Epistemic Game Engine for Journalism
It is argued that rather than simply recreating the technological conditions of the profession, an epistemic game engine like Byline can encode key elements of a professional practicum and thus help young people learn through participation in simulations of the training practices of socially valued professions such as science journalism.

This study compares the development of an epistemic frame in a journalism epistemic game, science.net, with a professional journalism practicum and shows how the virtual internship produced the same type of mentor feedback as the professional practicum on which it was modeled.
The epistemography of journalism 335: complexity in developing journalistic expertise
An intermediate level reporting practicum course is examined to explore the learning processes therein and a new method called Epistemic Network Analysis is explored to explore emergent relationships within developing journalistic expertise.
Implementation of the Sound Partners Reading Program
Eleven first grade and 10 second grade students, all with reading and behavioral difficulties, received one-on-one tutoring using the Sound Partners reading program (Vadasy & Pool, l997). Students
Reflection in professional play
Working in computational microworlds gives students opportunities to learn STEM subjects through problems that are realistic, complex, and meaningful.
Toward a Scalable Learning Analytics Solution
An abstracted version of Kidaptive’s psychometric and behavioral models are provided as an “out-of-the-box” product offering to address limitation of the human expertise required to build custom models for every learning environment.
Comments of Journalism Mentors on News Stories: Classification and Epistemic Status of Mentor Contributions
We identified the speech act categories and clusters of discourse comments of journalism mentors who interact with students editing news stories. Two important speech act categories are evaluations
Comparing Epistemic Frames: An exercise in visual comparison
The comparison of Epistemic Frames is considered as an example of a visual comparison problem and some of the initial efforts to create visualizations of the data including using the problem as a design challenge in a class are described.
