Volumes of detailed information are now unobtrusively collected as students use learning management systems and digital learning environments in their studies. This significantly elevates opportunities to better understand how students learn. The learning analytics community is exploring these data to describe learning processes [117] and ground recommendations for improved learning environments [8, 102, 139]. One challenge in this work is need for more and more detailed information about each s...

Data used in learning analytics rarely provide strong and clear signals about how learners process content. As a result, learning as a process is not clearly described for learners or for learning scientists. Gasevic, Dawson, and Siemens (2015) urged data be sought that more straightforwardly describe processes in terms of events within learning episodes. They recommended building on Winne’s (1982) characterization of traces — ambient data gathered as learners study that more clearly represent w...

Revision is important but challenging for novice writers, particularly in post-secondary education where opportunities for personalized feedback are limited. Inexperienced writers typically overlook revision; when they do revise, they focus on surface errors rather than global revisions that enhance meaning and coherence. Writing analytics can automate personalized prompts to guide revision. We use topic modelling LDA as grounds for an analytic to scaffold holistic revision at paragraph and essa...

Self-regulation of learning (SRL) involves students controlling of their own cognition, behaviour, emotions and motivation through metacognitive awareness of their conditions and situations (Winne & Hadwin, 1998). While this self-reflective process is argued to be adaptive, students may also exhibit maladaptive responses through poorly orchestrated SRL skills. What is considered maladaptive, however, may be relative to one’s goal; the same behaviour can be adaptive in one’s current context but m...

Our systematic review analyzes operational definitions of TM, and identifies relations of TM to performance in post-secondary education and work contexts. A broad set of search terms were used to identify 227 sources; culled to 49 after review. Theoretical and operational definitions of TM vary considerably, limiting generalizability of empirical findings, clarity of recommendations, and opportunity to meta-analytically explore effect sizes. Procrastination consistently negatively related to TM....

The impostor phenomenon (IP) refers to high-achievers who underestimate their abilities and thus fear being unmasked as impostors. IP sufferers attribute their success to factors other than their abilities, entailing negative emotions, unfavorable motivations, and reduced well-being. The IP was originally conceptualized as a predominantly female experience, and is thus seen as an important psychological barrier for female academic careers. Empirical findings of gender differences in the IP are e...

Learners working on major learning projects, such as an undergraduate thesis, frequently engage in information problem solving (IPS). In round-trip IPS, learners set goals and develop a work plan, search for and filter sources, critically analyze and mine key information, and draft and revise a final product. Information problem solving is a prime site for self-regulated learning (SRL) whereby learners formulate and carry out self-designed experiments to improve IPS skills and expand knowledge a...
