This ebook introduces significant Purposive interplay research (MPIA) thought, which mixes social community research (SNA) with latent semantic research (LSA) to aid create and examine a significant studying panorama from the electronic strains left through a studying neighborhood within the co-construction of data.

The hybrid set of rules is applied within the statistical programming language and atmosphere R, introducing programs which seize – via matrix algebra – components of inexperienced persons’ paintings with extra a professional others and creative content material artefacts. The booklet presents complete package-by-package software examples, and code samples that advisor the reader in the course of the MPIA version to teach how the MPIA panorama will be developed and the learner’s trip mapped and analysed. This development block software will let the reader to development to utilizing and construction analytics to steer scholars and help decision-making in learning.

1(1–2), 44–61 (2005) Chapter 2 Learning Theory and Algorithmic Quality Characteristics A theory is a vehicle for understanding, explaining, and predicting particular subject matters. Theories are formed by their postulates and the derived sentences. The postulates are axioms that are assumed to hold for this theory, whereas the sentences and theorems are either logically derived or supported with evidence (Diekmann 2002, p. 141). Each theory has restricted validity and holds only for the subject matter studied.

For example, the latter three competence classes social, self, and methodological competence are strongly influencing the development of the first, professional competence—being both prerequisite and requirement to realise high levels of professional expertise. , Wild and Stahl 2007). Only in its reflection in performance, evidence for competence can be assessed. Performance, according to Stahl (2008, p. 24) is “the externalized demonstration of internalized competence”: performance is competence in action.

It is possible to collect those writings of competent persons that demonstrate a particular class of competence. If the amount of demonstrations collected is sufficiently big enough, the established set can be utilised to evaluate—in an automated way—yet unknown performance demonstrations. g. by posing an exam question) and to then check if the use of language is in line with the language model established by the collection. Any software system meant to automate the evaluation of performance demonstrations must be able to reliably and accurately differentiate demonstrations of competence from demonstrations of incompetence.
