Conference Paper
Without a sense of belonging, students may become disheartened and give up when faced with new challenges. Moreover, with the sudden growth of remote learning due to COVID-19, it may be even more difficult for students to feel connected to the course and peers in isolation. Therefore, we propose a recommendation system to build connections between...

The catalogue raisonné compiled by art scholars holds information about an artist’s work such as a painting’s image, medium, provenance, and title. The catalogue raisonné as a tangible asset suffers from the challenges of art authentication and impermanence. As the catalogue raisonné is born digital, the impermanence challenge abates, but the authe...

About one-third of college students drop out before finishing their degree. The majority of those remaining will take longer than 4 years to complete their degree at “4-year” institutions. This problem emphasizes the need to identify students who may benefit from support to encourage timely graduation. Here we empirically develop machine learning a...

Student reflections can provide instructors with beneficial knowledge regarding their progress in the course, what challenges they are facing, and how the instructor can provide more effectively to the students' needs. Reading every student reflection, however, can be a time-consuming task that may affect the instructor's ability to efficiently add...

The adoption of Online Judge (OJ) environments by CS1 instructors has increased over the last few years. A potential explanation of this growth is that OJs reduce instructors? workload in correcting learners? codes and provide instantaneous and accurate feedback to students about the correctness of their solutions. Despite the benefits, there are s...

In this paper, we aim to analyze how students learn programming in an introductory course using data from an online Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The goal is to utilize IDE data and learning analytics techniques to provide practical insights and suggestions for course instructors to guide students to success. The data collected from the...

The role of an integrated IDE capable of several different key features in teaching and learning programming is very clear to everyone. In this work-in-progress paper, we present the new version of our Caring IDE, a cloud-based IDE system integrated with a Learning Management System (LMS), an autograder, databases for storage, and dashboard prototy...
Conference Paper
This paper presents an interactive AI system to enable academic advisors and program leadership to understand the patterns of behavior related to student success and risk using data collected from institutional databases. We have worked closely with advisors in our development of an innovative temporal model of student data, unsupervised k-means al...

In this evidence-based practice paper, we present our experiences with different scaffolding techniques to improve student engagement in active learning classes. Scaffolding of course content enables learners to achieve the expected course learning outcomes smoothly from lower to higher challenge levels. Also, in active learning classes with an emp...

The correct sequence of courses in a curriculum can ensure that students develop their knowledge and skills holistically. The challenge level can also be more evenly distributed. Creating these sequences is difficult because curriculum designers must consider multiple potentially conflicting criteria simultaneously. There currently exists a dearth...

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) discipline courses, and especially their introductory courses, are reported to have high failure rates. The long lecture- based format of teaching in introductory courses has shown very unsuccessful results. For example, historically, the drop”D”, “F”/fail, and withdraw (DFW) rates have been...

Learning analytics is an emerging discipline within data science. It is analytics that is concerned with developing methods for exploring the unique and increasingly large-scale datasets collected from educational settings, including the collection, analysis, and visualization of such educational data. The goal of the analyses and visualizations is...

This work in progress presents a model for first undergraduate software engineering course as a core course of the computer science curriculum. The course is designed to be offered in the fourth or fifth semesters (i.e., end of sophomore or beginning of the junior year) for students who have completed the introductory programming and data structure...

We introduced a model of activity-based active learning class which has been practiced for a few years in [4]. While it may seem an easy task, designing an effective activity-based active learning can be quite challenging. Active learning adds new benefits to teaching including increased student involvement, social interaction, and hands-on learnin...

This research to practice full paper provides preliminary evidence that integrating reflections is a significant feature to identify at-risk students early in a semester as verified and validated by a sequence-based learning analytics model. We've devised an active learning classroom model which incorporates reflection at multiple points in student...

Reflection is a way to get quick opinions from users, clients, etc. Analysis of reflection often involves subjective review and interpretations. On the other hand, data analytics provides guidelines to collect and measure as well as analyze and reflect on data. In our case, learning analytics of students' reflections reveals information about learn...
