Interactive and adaptive scaffolds in digital learning environments yield sustainable positive effects on mathematics learning in disadvantaged students.
This study demonstrates a viable way to unobtrusively measure students' classroom engagement utilizing process data from electronic textbooks.
We developed interactive material for learning fractions providing scaffolds in an e-textbook. High-achieving students did benefit from the curriculum, regardless of whether it was presented with or without interactive scaffolds, while for low-achieving students using scaffolds was decisive.
Computer-based learning environments introduce aspects that allow further information on learning processes to be gleaned. In this study, linear mixed models revealed a negative effect of time on task on task success, which was moderated by exercise difficulty and by student competence.
