The current study investigates the relation between personalizable feature use, attitudes, and in-system performance in the context of the game-based system, iSTART-ME. This analysis focuses on a subset (n=40) of a larger study (n=126) conducted with high school students. The results revealed a positive relation between students’ frequency of interactions with personalizable features and their self-reported engagement and perceived system control. Students who frequently interacted with… CONTINUE READING
