Below is the abstract and a small sample from the introduction from “Using Learning Analytics to Assess Writing and Peer Review in Stem Courses” by Moxley, Anson, Lane, Ross, and Donahue:
This panel presentation will briefly report on the early stages of an NSF-funded research project to explore, in part, the value of Learning Analytics and Educational Data mining in STEM courses that engage students in writing and peer review.
A comprehensive suite of tools, My Reviewers is an e-learning environment; document-markup tools and workflows that facilitate peer review and team projects; an eportfolio system; an assessment tool to expedite accreditation reports; a publication platform for etexts; and a research project for universities to research student success, pedagogy, the development and transfer of writing competencies; intrapersonal, interpersonal, and cognitive competencies, and usability design. This presentation addresses our latter mission—to explore ways to develop tools to support student learning.
