Rethinking Accessibility: Applications in Educational Data Mining Workshop coming in July

Published On Friday, June 17, 2022

Do you have ideas for how to bring data mining and machine learning to your inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (IDEA) research? If so, you are invited to submit a proposal to join researchers from the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and Northwestern University at an upcoming 2022 EDM virtual workshop to discuss, “Rethinking Accessibility: Applications in Educational Data Mining” 

Process Squared: Mining Processes in NAEP Process Data

Published On Friday, January 14, 2022

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) began to transition to digitally based assessments (DBAs) in 2017. DBAs enable the collection of data on students’ interactions with the assessment. However, these data are not trivial to analyze, given their time-dependent nature, abundance, structural complexity, and inevitable errors in collection. For the full potential of process data to be realized, researchers must possess analytical skills that go beyond traditional statistical analysis. In the upcoming 2022 NCME conference, researchers from American Institutes for Research (AIR) , under the guidance of the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), will conduct a training session using methods taken from business process mining and graph theory to advance the use of NAEP process data.
