This is a RA research project in LearnLab, CMU, advised by Prof. Kenneth Koedinger and Dr. Paulo Carvalho.
a) I used educational data mining techniques to analyze practice features in a graduate-level course about E-Learning Design & Methods and b) I provided practical redesign suggestions to refine and redesign the current course.

Cleaned two years of log data in the E-learning course; performed mixed-effect models to detect general doer effect; did learning curve analysis to detect low-performed KCs with actionable refinement recommendations; did exploratory analyses for quiz behavior.
Synthesised the summer work, did literature review and finished paper writing with my co-authors.
Provided feasible redesign suggestions to my co-workers.
For example, (1) create new review questions for KCs that are not covered in current review practices. (2) add instructional messages, feedback and hint messages to inner-system practices (Right Figure). (3) display prompts to encourage students to finish review practices.
