We collect data on the behaviors of communities in the form of the following metrics:
Conversation Ratio - the number of comments/answers/votes a community memeber made per question that they posted. The higher the conversation ratio, the more a student engages with others.
The Proportion of Posting Average - This is the degree to which a community member’s number of questions/answers/votes/comments is over or under the average number of posts per member for the community.
Point Differential - The point differential is the number of points the community member earned minus the point goal set for the community. This number reflects the number of points the student scored above or below the point goal.
The Proportion of Course Goal - The proportion of course goal is the degree to which a member’s total earned points is over or under the total point goal for the community. This number reflects the member’s level of effort relative to the total points expected, and is an indication of intrinsic motivation and value provided by the MathsGee platform.
