Assessing Collaborative Undergraduate Student Wikis and SVN with Technology-based Instrumentation: Relating Participation Patterns to Learning [Authors removed for Blind Review] [Affliation removed for Blind Review]This paper presents a detailed analysis of an undergraduate computer science course that implementsproject-based learning through joint coding projects that use team collaboration tools like wikis andversion control systems. The goal of the case study work is two-fold: First, to understand the process ofcollaboration from a pedagogical perspective. Secondly, to use the findings to determine how effectivestudent knowledge and performance assessment tools can be developed to provide feedback to helpinstructors understand student strengths and need-to-improve areas. Inspired by an Activity Theoryframework, we present an analysis that was performed using technology based instrumentation andautomatic content processing. Our analysis covers interactions between teams and tools, quantity andchronology of contributions, and correlations between work and achievement.
