A Study of Factors and Perceptions that Mediate Student Participation in Supplementary Discussion Forums

Erin Shaw
2019
Students were surveyed using the Forum Participation Mediator Instrument, which was developed for this study, that encompassed participation motivation, forum satisfaction, and help-seeking preferences  ...  An exploratory factor analysis of student responses identified six components that characterized different mediators of participation—"engaged socially", "urgent need", "seek affirmation", "lack confidence  ...  We would like to map this data to a format organized hierarchically by forum, thread, and post, if possible.  ...
