Assessing collaborative online inquiry and social deliberation in digital environments
Date of Original Version
We describe efforts to design and validate a digitally-based assessment of collaborative online inquiry and social deliberation using a digital virtual world platform with embedded supports for real-time collaboration. Cognitive validity studies were conducted to examine the collaborative prompts and the overall task, with 21 dyads participating in either Face-to-Face (FTF; n=5) or Computer-Mediated (CM; n=16) conditions. Quantitative results suggest the task captured variation in dyads’ inquiry performances and processes.
