This project, joint between M&M and CMDM, will create a set of fine-grained detectors of affect and M&M behaviors. These detectors will be usable by future projects in these two thrusts to study the impact of learning interventions on these dimensions of students’ learning experiences, and to study the inter-relationships between these constructs and other key PSLC constructs (such as measures of robust learning, and motivational questionnaire data). It will be possible to apply these detectors retrospectively to existing PSLC data in DataShop, in order to re-interpret prior work in the light of relevant evidence on students’ affect and M&M behaviors.
