Collaborative writing with wikis: Evaluating students' contributions
Abstract Wikis are widely considered as collaboratiWikis are widely considered as collaborative writing tools that foster collaborative writing. Most studies that report on wiki capabilities to support collaborative writing are based on students' subjective perceptions, which are not reliable enough to measure the degree and level of contribution to the wiki. A more reliable method is the data log generated by wikis, which tracks all actions and activities performed by each student and stores all previous versions of the wiki. This data log is of considerable interest and inherently more reliable to collect and analyze collaborative writing activities than students' subjective perceptions. Using MediaWiki as a platform, this work reports on the evaluation of the data logs created by wikis as students perform collaborative writing projects. The results are critically discussed and some pedagogical implications are drawn for collaborative writing in teacher education.ollaborative writing in teacher education.
