Analysis of Spring 1990 Field Tryouts of MEAP Essential Skills Mathematics Test Items Using a Partial Credit Model
The partial credit model of G. N. Masters (1982), a one-parameter unidimensional polychotomous Rasch model, was used to reduce the error of measurement, particularly for students near the cut score, and to permit measurement to reflect the actual...
Building Cognitively Informed Simulators Utilizing Multiple, Linked Representations Which Explain Core Concepts in Modern Biology
World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia and Telecommunications Vol. 2005, No. 1 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 3773–3778
The purpose of this paper is to describe the process and products of a simulation/tutorial environment for use in the Modern Biology course. The course is being developed using the "cognitively informed" principles of the Open Learning Initiative,...
Using Embedded Interactive Feedback Devices to Change the Classroom Dynamic in a Large Lecture Hall.
World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia and Telecommunications Vol. 2006, No. 1 (June 2006) pp. 1476–1481
By embedding interactive feedback devices within the online course we are building, we hope to change the classroom dynamic of the large lecture classroom for freshman Modern Biology from one of unprepared students listening passively to the...
Improving the Feedback Cycle to Improve Learning in Introductory Biology Using the Digital Dashboard
World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education Vol. 2006, No. 1 (October 2006) pp. 1030–1035
At Carnegie Mellon we are integrating timely and targeted feedback for the students and real-time student progress reports for the instructor to create an online learning environment that engages the student, improves learning and allows immediate...
Improving Animation Tutorials by Integrating Simulation, Assessment, and Feedback to Promote Active Learning
World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education Vol. 2007, No. 1 (Oct 15, 2007) pp. 144–150
A multidisciplinary team of biologists, media programmers and educators have been constructing detailed animated tutorials describing complex biological processes to facilitate students' understanding in the Modern Biology and Biochemistry courses...
World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia and Telecommunications Vol. 2007, No. 1 (Jun 25, 2007) pp. 1084–1092
Carnegie Mellon is creating a Digital Dashboard for Learning (DDL) to enable faculty and students to tune their immediate actions (lectures, assignments, study) based on rapid feedback on student progress in learning. The DDL will provide faculty...
Considerations for Interviewing MMOG Players Avatar to Avatar: the Experiences and the Data Reviewed
World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education Vol. 2007, No. 1 (Oct 15, 2007) pp. 6731–6736
Abstract: This study investigates the process and results of surveying MMOG players in-game, that is avatar to avatar. It is believed that the technique of in-game interviews and surveys will elicit a more robust response than out-of-game surveys....
