Abstract

This paper describes a proposal and an examination of a new method to assess communication among learners in the CSCL. The authors have developed the method to visualize discussions by focusing on the relationship between topic keywords and each learner using a correspondence analysis (Fujitani et al, 2003). In this paper, the authors examine the effectiveness of the method for students' self assessment, through an experimental study in a cross-cultural CSCL program. The proposed method represents a map between topic parts and students f commitment in the learning community, according to interviews with students. The map has the potential to help learners engage in active discussions by providing the reflection of their own interest or that of others.
