Abstract

In this paper, we describe multimodal learning analytics techniques for understanding and identifying expertise as students engage in a hands-on building activity. Our techniques leverage process-oriented data, and demonstrate how this temporal data can be used to study student learning. The proposed techniques introduce useful insights in how to segment and analyze gesture- and action-based generally, and may also be useful for other sources of process rich data. Using this approach we uncover new ideas about how experts engage in building activities. Finally, a primary objective of this work is to motivate additional research and development in the area of authentic, automated, process-oriented assessments.
