Eine neue Publikation "Discovering the Effects of Metacognitive Prompts on the Sequential Structure of SRL-Processes Using Process Mining Techniques" des Arbeitsbereichs ist in der Zeitschrift "Journal of Learning Analytics" erschienen.
Im Rahmen des Themenschwerpunkts „Self-regulated learning and learning analytics“ wurde eine Publikation von Christoph Sonnenberg und Maria Bannert in der neuen Ausgabe des Journal of Learning Analytics veröffentlicht. Der Zeitschriftenartikel “Discovering the Effects of Metacognitive Prompts on the Sequential Structure of SRL-Processes Using Process Mining Techniques” stellt eine detaillierte Untersuchung der zeitlichen Abfolge von Lernaktivitäten beim selbstregulierten Lernen mit digitalen Medien dar.
According to research examining self-regulated learning (SRL), we regard individual regulation as a specific sequence of regulatory activities. Ideally, students perform various learning activities, such as analyzing, monitoring, and evaluating cognitive and motivational aspects during learning. Metacognitive prompts can foster SRL by inducing regulatory activities, which, in turn, improve the learning outcome. However, the specific effects of metacognitive support on the dynamic characteristics of SRL are not understood. Therefore, the aim of our study was to analyze the effects of metacognitive prompts on learning processes and outcomes during a computer-based learning task. Participants of the experimental group (EG, n=35) were supported by metacognitive prompts, whereas participants of the control group (CG, n=35) received no support. Data regarding learning processes were obtained by concurrent think-aloud protocols. The EG exhibited significantly more metacognitive learning events than did the CG. Furthermore, these regulatory activities correspond positively with learning outcomes. Process mining techniques were used to analyze sequential patterns. Our findings indicate differences in the process models of the EG and CG and demonstrate the added value of taking the order of learning activities into account by discovering regulatory patterns.
