Workshop Hosts:

Increasingly, the meat of many CS courses is provided by many interactive, auto-assessed exercises, referred to as "smart content". These tools engage students, provide valuable feedback, and allow collection of data for further analysis. While it remains a challenge to connect these tools to learning management systems (LMS), eTextbooks and IDEs, standards like Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) make it possible. Interoperability is improving year by year. Collecting, distributing, and analyzing the rapidly growing collections of data generated by click streams coming from such tools is still a major challenge. But progress is being made both in improved analysis tools and in standards for collecting data, like student attempts at solving programming problems This NSF-supported workshop is the third in a series of SIGCSE pre-symposium events in support of the SPLICE project. The goal of SPLICE is to support and better coordinate efforts to build community and capacity among Computer Science Education (CSEd) researchers, data scientists, and learning scientists toward reducing barriers. CSEd infrastructure should support (1) broader re-use of innovative learning content instrumented for rich data collection, (2) formats and tools for analysis of learner data, and (3) development of best practices to make collections of learner data available to researchers. The organizers and presenters will share progress from ongoing projects and collaborations, attempting to build an agenda for the community to strive for in the coming years.

Important Dates:

Intended Audience:
The audience is expected to consist of CSEd tool builders, developers of student analytics data analysis tools, and CSEd researchers who would like to make use of user interaction data collected by their own projects or by others. We are expecting about 50 attendees.

The workshop is organized by the SPLICE (Standards, Protocols, and Learning Infrastructure for Computing Education) project team, in association with the NSF-supported project Community-Building and Infrastructure Design for Data-Intensive Research in Computer Science Education. It follows a sequence of the previous SPLICE and CSEDM workshops organized at SIGCSE, EDM, AIED, ICER, LAK, and ACM L@S conferences.
