Keystroke logging has become instrumental in identifying writing strategies and understanding cognitive processes. Recent technological advances have refined logging efficiency and analytical outputs. While keystroke logging allows for ecological data collection, it is often difficult to connect the fine grain of logging data to the underlying cognitive processes. Multiple methodologies are useful to offset these difficulties. In this article we explore the complementarity of the keystroke… Expand

Understanding the keystroke log: the effect of writing task on keystroke features
AbstractKeystroke 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 howExpand
Reporting Writing Process Feedback in the Classroom. Using Keystroke Logging Data to Reflect on Writing Processes
TLDR
A new function in Inputlog is developed, specifically aiming to facilitate writing tutors in providing process feedback to their students, and is described and demonstrated the use of it in an intervention. Expand
COMBINED DEPLOYABLE KEYSTROKE LOGGING AND EYETRACKING FOR INVESTIGATING L2 WRITING FLUENCY
Abstract Although fluency is an important subconstruct of language proficiency, it has not received as much attention in L2 writing research as complexity and accuracy have, in part due to the lackExpand
Understanding the Dynamics of Second Language Writing through Keystroke Logging and Complexity Contours
TLDR
The procedures and measures developed to analyze a sample of 14,913,009 keystrokes in 3,454 texts produced by 512 university students aiming to achieve a better alignment between keystroke-logging measures and underlying cognitive processes and L2 writing performance measures are presented. Expand
Classification of Writing Patterns Using Keystroke Logs
TLDR
There is an overall moderate association between the inter-word interval information and the quality of final product and the results suggest promise for the use of keystroke log analysis as a tool for describing patterns or styles of student writing processes. Expand
Using keystroke logging to understand writers’ processes on a reading-into-writing test
BackgroundIntegrated reading-into-writing tasks are increasingly used in large-scale language proficiency tests. Such tasks are said to possess higher authenticity as they reflect real-life writingExpand
Manipulating texture and cohesion in academic writing: A keystroke logging study
Abstract Research has repeatedly shown that problems arise when students are asked to link information co-textually and contextually across larger phases of discourse. Within Systemic FunctionalExpand
Identifying writing tasks using sequences of keystrokes
TLDR
This study tries to identify properties of keystrokes that indicate cognitive load of the writing process and investigates the influence of these properties on the classification of texts written during two different writing tasks: copying a text and freeform generation of text. Expand
Identifying Mixture Components From Large-Scale Keystroke Log Data
  • Tingxuan Li
  • Medicine
  • Frontiers in Psychology
  • 2021
TLDR
Using a mixture of lognormal models, the main findings show that the estimated parameters on pause data are meaningful and interpretable with low-to-high cognitive processes. Expand
Detecting Academic Misconduct Using Learning Analytics
TLDR
Results suggest that keystroke and clickstream analysis may be able to distinguish between a student writing an authentic piece of work and one transcribing a completed work, and signal significant implications for the detection of contract cheating. Expand

Keystroke Analysis
TLDR
These measures were used to analyze pauses, bursts, and revisions and found that burst lengths vary depending on their initiation type as well as their termination type, suggesting that the classification system used in previous research should be elaborated. Expand
Combined eyetracking and keystroke-logging methods for studying cognitive processes in text production
TLDR
It is demonstrated how the methods instantiated within these systems can be used to make sense of the large amount of data generated by eyetracking and keystroke logging in order to inform understanding of the cognitive processes that underlie written text production. Expand
What keystroke-logging can reveal about writing
TLDR
A bird's eye perspective on the budding paradigm of using keystroke logging as a window on the online process of writing is given and methods and tools for designing writing experiments, recording writing activity, and for analysing recordings of writing activity are reviewed. Expand
Combining Keystroke Logging with Eye Tracking
This chapter describes the successful development of a new methodology for studying on-line writing. The text-logging tool ScriptLog has been combined with the eyetracking technology iView X HED HT,Expand
From Character to Word Level: Enabling the Linguistic Analyses of Inputlog Process Data
TLDR
A parser has been developed that extracts three types of data from the S-notation: word-level revisions, deleted fragments, and the final writing product, which represents clean and grammatical text. Expand
Examining Pauses in Writing: Theory, Methods and Empirical Data
TLDR
This chapter will address both theoretical and methodological issues in pause analysis, including the theoretical assumptions concerning how pause analysis can contribute towards the authors' understanding of written language production and some empirical analyses are given. Expand
Academic writers on-line: investigating pausing in the production of text
In this paper we present details of an approach to the study of writing processes based on the analysis of temporal aspects of the writing event. This approach involves recording the keystrokeExpand
Looking at the keyboard or the monitor: relationship with text production processes
In this paper we explored text production differences in an expository text production task between writers who looked mainly at the keyboard and writers who looked mainly at the monitor.Expand
A Design, Tests and Considerations for Improving Keystroke and Mouse Loggers
TLDR
Improvements to a keystroke logger for the Mac and PC, Recording User Input (RUI), are reported, which includes changes to its interface, increased accuracy, and extensions to its logging ability. Expand
Influence of Typing Skill on Pause-Execution Cycles in Written Composition
TLDR
Results showed that the time ratio between pauses and execution differs between groups, and relative to fast typists, slow typists make more pauses, and have shorter execution periods. Expand
