Collaborative Computing Observation Instrument (C-COI)

The Collaborative Computing Observation Instrument¬† was developed by the CTRL-Shift research team under the direction of Dr. Maya Israel. It tracks student interactions as they work on computing tasks, with specific attention to collaborative problem solving, persistence, and adaptive help seeking. It is used in concert with video screen recording software such as Screencastify that records students’ computer screens and dialogue as they engage in computational activities.

We began the development of the C-COI by designing a visual model of student behaviors as they engaged in computing activities: Computational Thinking Flowchart

Team members involved in the development of the C-COI include: Maya Israel, Evan Ramos, Quentin Wherfel, Saad Shehab, and George Reese
