Title: "Using Clickstream Data to Explore Students' Course Behaviors in a Flipped Calculus Course"
Authors: Mariela Rivas, Fernando Rodriguez, Mark Warschauer
The typical flipped classroom format requires students to complete activities prior to class, such as watching online video lectures, reading, or completing quizzes. This leaves more time for the instructor to conduct in-class problem solving and group activities during classtime. While the research points to the benefits of using a flipped classroom format, there is still a need to understand how students interact with the online elements of the course and what student behaviors are correlated with success or failure. For this study, we examined students’ clickstream data to explore student behavior in an online flipped calculus course. Ultimately, the goal of this project is to analyze student behavior patterns in order to iteratively improve learning outcomes in the course.
