Using Log Data to Predict Response Behaviors in Classroom Discussions

Document Type


Publication Date



The Comprehension Seeding system allows students to respond to an open-ended question using tablet computers; the system provides formative feedback to teachers to facilitate discussion and encourage students to engage in reflective behaviors. Data from a semester-long intervention suggested that few students engaged in this reflective process, leading us to question under what conditions the reflection process does or will occur. Using logistic regression, we investigated different ways the system was used, and what types of usage lead to desired, reflective behavior.
