Agent-in-the-Loop: Conversational Agent Support in Service of Reflection for Learning During Collaborative Programming [chapter]

Sreecharan Sankaranarayanan, Siddharth Reddy Kandimalla, Sahil Hasan, Haokang An, Christopher Bogart, R. Charles Murray, Michael Hilton, Majd Sakr, Carolyn Rosé
2020 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In order to understand the boundary between human-led and AI-led support for collaboration, we compare in this study an approach where the agent's primary role is to help students regulate their own collaboration  ...  with two more typical prompting strategies that are used only during a reflection phase: one designed to provide a specific informational focus for the reflection, and the other designed to draw out evaluation  ...  Results of the 2 × 2 experimental study show that specific portions of the programming activity lend themselves to pre-to post-test learning and within those portions, a significant improvement in learning  ...

Exploring the Educational Benefits of Introducing Aspect-Oriented Programming Into a Programming Course

Ivica Boticki, Marija Katic, Sergio Martin
2013 IEEE Transactions on Education  
This paper explores the educational benefits of introducing the aspectoriented programming paradigm into a programming course, in a study on a sample of 75 undergraduate software engineering students.  ...  It discusses how using the aspect-oriented paradigm, in addition to the object-oriented programming paradigm, affects students' programs, their exam results and their overall perception of the theoretically-claimed  ...  In order to figure out the intervention impact, the means of both the experimental and control groups' metrics are compared with an independent sample t-test.  ...

Some limitations of evaluative investigations based solely on normed outcome measures

J P Gagné, S McDuff, L Getty
1999 Journal of american academy of audiology  
Moreover, comprehensive evaluative research investigations should include an evaluation of (1) the process of intervention and (2) the impacts and consequences of the intervention program.  ...  Finally, some guidelines that could lead to the development of comprehensive evaluative research in rehabilitation are outlined.  ...  Specif- ically, comprehensive evaluative research paradigms must also include procedures to mea- sure the impacts and consequences that an inter- vention program has on the participants.  ...

An experimental study of a design-driven, tool-based development approach

Quentin Enard, Christine Louberry, Charles Consel, Xavier Blanc
2012 2012 First International Workshop on User Evaluation for Software Engineering Researchers (USER)  
This paper discusses a step towards assessing these benefits by proposing an experimental study that involves a design-driven, tool-based development approach.  ...  In examining these questions, we explore specific issues such as the approaches that should be involved in the comparison, the metrics that should be used, and the experimental framework that is required  ...  In this paper, we propose to conduct an experimental study to measure this assumption in the context of design artifacts used in a productive way.  ...

2021 International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health  
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of physical and cognitive training programs, as well as their combination on the cognitive functions and physical capacities in women over 80 years old  ...  All of training programs had duration of eight weeks (five sessions of 60 min per week). We measured cognitive variables with the Stroop test, D2 test, and Trail Making test.  ...  In our study, the participants who join in an experimental group (i.e., EG1, EG2, and EG3) showed a physical and cognitive improvement, independently to the training program performed.  ...
