Recordings from “Beyond Results 2021: From log data to valid inferences – Theory-based construction of process indicators”

The International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA), together with the Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education (DIPF) and the Centre for International Student Assessment (ZIB), hosted a two-day workshop on analyzing log file and process data from large-scale international assessments in education. The event took place as an interactive webinar and online video conference on September 30th and October 1st, 2021.

Beyond Results 2021 aims at providing a platform for discussing conceptual perspectives and empirical research on how to construct process indicators that are, in some way, anchored in theory. The range of topics comprises the design of cognitive assessments providing meaningful log data, methods to extract features and process indicators from log data, strategies to validate the interpretation of process indicators and approaches to communicate insights obtained from process indicators.

In case of questions or comments, feel free to contact the organizers of the 2021 workshop:

Heiko Sibberns (IEA), Ulf Kroehne (DIPF), Frank Goldhammer (ZIB, DIPF) and Ralph Carstens (IEA)
