2. Main results

During this 2-year project, working in close collaboration with LS2N and INTUIDOC, the LP3C team conducted more than 10 studies (N = 1,158), surveys or usability tests to consolidate and extend the KASSIS solution. Some preliminary results have already been published, while others will be published in the near future.

The first objective of the studies summarized below was to improve KASSIS from a UCD perspective. When prototypes were designed, they were used to collect user feedback (from students and teachers) during and after the learning tasks. These user tests allowed us to assess whether usability objectives were met, but we also used the information we gathered to drive the design of subsequent prototypes for the INTUIDOC team. For example, this approach was used to analyze users’ needs and habits (Study 1) and to evaluate and improve the usability of KASSIS in various teaching settings (Studies 2, 3, 4, 5a, 5b, 6, 8 and 10).

The second objective of these studies was to rigorously evaluate the impact of KASSIS on students’ learning outcomes and motivation. To this end, we compared several functionalities of KASSIS with those of more traditional environments (Study 2 for note taking, and Study 8 for graphic quizzes), and assessed different ways of using KASSIS to assess their respective effects on learning (Studies 3 and 4 for dyads’ collaborative learning, Studies 5a and 5b for distributed quizzes, and Study 7 for collective feedback in a heatmap format).

The third objective was to design teacher dashboards adopting a UCD approach. For example, we used this approach to analyze teachers’ needs and habits (Study 7) and to improve dashboards (Study 10).

The timeline below presents an overview of the project unfolding, while the following table sets out the key features of the studies conducted in the course of the project.
