How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Task difficulty (TD) reflects students' subjective judgement on the complexity of a task. We examine the task difficulty sequence data of 236 undergraduate students in a simulation-based Predict-Observe-Explain environment. The findings suggest that if students perceive the TDs as easy or hard, it may lead to poorer learning outcomes, while the med...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Though recent technological advances have enabled note-taking through different modalities (e.g., keyboard, digital ink, voice), there is still a lack of understanding of the effect of the modality choice on learning. In this paper, we compared two note-taking input modalities—keyboard and voice—to study their effects on participants' learning. We...

Task difficulty (TD) reflects students' subjective judgement on the complexity of a task. We examine the TDs data of 236 undergraduate students in a simulation-based Predict-Observe-Explain (POE) environment using three different labels easy, medium and hard. Generally, the students who perceive the tasks to be easy or hard perform poorly at the tr...

Confusion is an important epistemic emotion because it can help students focus their attention and effort when solving complex learning tasks. However, unresolved confusion can be detrimental because it may result in students’ disengagement. This is especially concerning in simulation environments using discovery-based learning, which puts more of...

Video is becoming a dominant medium for the delivery of educational material. Despite the widespread use of video for learning, there is still a lack of understanding about how best to help people learn in this medium. This study demonstrates the use of thermal camera as compared to traditional self-reported methods for assessing learners' cognitiv...

This work aims to characterize students' writing processes using keystroke logs and understand how the extracted characteristics influence the text quality at specific moments of writing. Earlier works have proposed predictive models characterizing students' writing processes and mainly rely on distribution-based measures of pauses obtained from th...

Using the analytics based behavioural markers to infer students' struggle and confusion in digital learning environments.
Poster
Full-text available
In digital learning environments ( the absence of direct immediate feedback from instructors or the systems may result in learners’ struggle and confusion If such confusion sustains it may lead to learners’ disengagement from the task. A timely and informed intervention, however may help learners in getting back to the task.
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, Engineering Education as a discipline has been analyzed by taking IEEE Transactions on Education (IEEE T Educ) as a case; to examine the various trends that have been emerging over time. Based on various criteria of authorship and citation, an effort is made to highlight the main contributors or top authors of this engineering educat...
Article
This article researches the influence of IJEEE on electrical engineering and electrical engineering education as a discipline. For this purpose, the history of this journal has been presented from a citation perspective. To identify leading and evolving research areas within IJEEE the authors conducted keyword analysis, which additionally showed ho...

This study uses bibliometric methods for disciplinary diversity, co-authorship, and research trends, to investigate the interdisciplinary changes in Engineering Education Research during 1980-2010. For this, the authors utilized the subject categories (SC) provided by the Thomson Scientific's Institute for Scientific Information ISI; specifically,...
Article
In the last three decades, engineering education research (EER) has made remarkable progress towards a field of interdisciplinary scholarship. This paper defines EER by developing a keyword-based scheme for exploring EER-related scientific publications and collaboration. The keyword-based scheme refers to a conceptual framework we have developed fo...
Conference Paper
In this paper the concept of stability, in the design of microwave transistor amplifiers is discussed along with various methods of stabilizing the potentially unstable device. The various techniques are then illustrated with the help of a design example utilizing the parameters of a typical small signal microwave BJT
Article
This work presents a generalized keyword based searching methodology that can be used to define any interdisciplinary emerging area of research. The problem in information retrieval for an interdisciplinary area lies in the fact that the venues where articles pertaining to such field are published are not that well defined and are widely spread out...
