Developing a framework for integrating prior problem solving and knowledge sharing histories of a group to predict future group
Using a combination of machine learning probabilistic tools, we have shown that some chemistry students fail to develop productive problem solving strategies through practice alone and will require interventions to continue making strategic progress. One particularly useful form of intervention was face-to-face collaborative learning which increased the overall solution rate of the problem solving while also improving the strategies used. However, the collaborative intervention was not effective for all groups making complicated. To better model the effects of group composition we have developed a synchronous and symmetrical collaborative extension to the online IMMEX problem solving environment. This online collaborative environment appeared an accurate representation of the face-to-face collaboration episode in that both groupings showed similar gains in the problem solution frequency as well as in the differential use of particular strategies. We also noticed that some groups, like...
