This update discusses some of the challenges of distributing an experiment in classrooms across institutional boundaries, and how we have designed the ManyClasses 1 study to address these challenges.
Updates from the ManyClasses team
The IU IRB has approved the ManyClasses 1 protocol!
Preprint of paper to be presented at SASLAS19, and appearing in the companion proceedings of the 9th International Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference (LAK19).
Students participating in ManyClasses 1 need to be given the option to provide informed consent, but ideally instructors should not know which students have consented to participate. We created a tool to enable encrypted consent.
We presented a vision for ManyClasses research at the replicate.education workshop at Education Data Mining 2018.
