Many computer games use custom scripts to control the ambient behaviors of non-player characters (NPCs). Therefore, a story writer must write fragments of computer code for the hundreds or thousands of NPCs in the game world. The challenge is to create entertaining and non-repetitive behaviors...
Habits of mind and the split-mind effect: When computer-assisted qualitative data anlsyis software is used in phenomenological researchDownload
When Marshall McLUHAN famously stated \"the medium is the message,\" he was echoing Martin HEIDEGGER's assertion that through our use of technology we can become functions of it. Therefore, how does adopting computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software affect our research activities and,...
The unprecedented growth in numbers of children playing computer games has stimulated discussion and research regarding what, if any, educational value these games have for teaching and learning. The research on this topic has primarily focused on children as players of computer games rather than...
Students’ learning choices, such as seeking critical feedback or revising their work, provide insights into the learning processes that unfold when students learn on their own. This research aims to characterize high-school students who choose to seek critical feedback and to revise posters in a...
Java has multiple inheritance of interfaces, but only single inheritance of code via classes. This situation results in duplicated code in Java library classes and application code. We describe a generalization to the Java language syntax and the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to support multiple...
We introduce one instance of a game-based assessment designed to measure students’ self-regulated learning choices. We describe our overarching measurement strategy and we present Posterlet, an assessment game in which students design posters and learn graphic design principles from feedback. We...
Qualitative interviewing using Interpersonal Process Recall: Investigating internal experiences during professional-client conversationsDownload
Interpersonal process recall (IPR) interviewing uses video-assisted recall to access conscious yet unspoken experiences in professional caregiving interactions. Although IPR has been employed across the helping professions, little has been written about effectively conducting IPR interviews....
This research aims to address the acute issue of the retention of female students in STEM domains. Specifically, this work proposes a three-year longitudinal study surveying the attitudes and beliefs of junior high-school students towards gender roles in computing science. This study will...

The traditional approach to implementing interactions between a player character (PC) and objects in computer games is to write scripts in a procedural scripting language. These scripts are usually so complex that they must be written by a computer programmer rather than by the author of the game...
This paper describes a study that explores the relation between high-school students’ feedback choices, memory for these feedback choices, and task performance. Choices to seek confirmatory (positive) or critical (negative) feedback and to revise posters in a poster design task were collected...
