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.
