A systematic review of assessment methods in mobile computer-supported collaborative learning (mCSCL)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This study aims to investigate (1) assessment measures utilized in Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (mCSCL) research; (2) whether these assessment measures have examined the effectiveness of mCSCL that the studies intend to assess; and (3) when the assessment measures are conducted in mCSCL research in an attempt to bring to light potential methods that are conducive to examining effectiveness of mCSCL practices and sustain the practices, and identify methodological issuesin mCSCL to be addressed in future research. The research findings show a variety of methodological issues that need to be addressed. Discussions are made in comparison with the findings in CSCL research and other studies leveraged by mobile technologies. Potential directions to investigate the effectiveness of mCSCL practices are proposed. Copyright © 2014 Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education.
