Implementation of student exchanges PeerWise


Comment coding student exchanges


Comments examples student exchanges


Which activity is most strongly associated with exam performance?

DV: Exam score

IV: Number of answers or comments made


Example: Physics 1A 2012-13 performance?

Is writing quality comments associated with higher exam performance when controlling for other factors?

Dependent Variable:Exam score

Independent Variables: No. comments coded > 4

Pre-test mark (FCI)

Scottish

Major

Gender


Building the model performance?

The model predicts that each new high quality comment, is associated with a 0.35% increase in exam score.

The minimum 6 comments associated with a 2% increase .

The mean of 14 comments associated with a 5% increase.


Conclusions performance?

Total engagement with PeerWise far exceeded minimum requirements

Across all disciplines, writing meaningful comments has a significant, positive association with exam performance when controlling for other known influential factors

Especially interesting given that PeerWise requires minimal instructor intervention; that PeerWise is only worth ~4% of the total course mark; and that providing feedback is only one aspect of the PeerWise assessment
