place in a computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) environment. The
approach is based on tracking the interactions between learners and tutors. Keeping
track of meaningful events serves three main purposes: evaluation of the quality of the
process, monitoring students’ performance in real time and the assessment of individual
learning performances. The results can be of benefit to course designers,
tutors/instructors and researchers involved in collaborative learning experiences. The
method is based on a five-dimensional model that includes a participative, an
interactive, a social, a cognitive and a teaching dimension. Each dimension can be
analysed through a set of indicators obtained by tracking course participants’ behaviour
within the learning environment. Examples of significant indicators, drawn from the
literature and the authors’ field experience, are discussed for each dimension. The
paper also proposes a taxonomy of the data needed to obtain the described indicators.
Finally, possible directions for further research are outlined.
Measurement of student’s “doing” something gives an indication of their involvement. It must be measured quantitatively, but also qualitative measures exist. There are three categories from which we can evaluate participation:
This refers to the relationships built during the learning process, and can be defined by
the reciprocal influences in the cognitive process. Evaluation can be measured by cross-
referencing messages or documents for co-production. Examples are:
reflection (I added this)
Meta cognitive skills are often among the explicit or implicit objectives of the learning
process. Many learners are new to this approach and lack skills needed to take
advantage of the training method. Asynchronous nature of online collaboration is well-
suited for reflective periods. Indicators for metacognition are not included because it is
almost impossible to catch it.
