I'm currently trying to publish a research manuscript that utilises log data of veterinary students access to undergraduate course activities hosted on moodle2. The data was collected in 2015-16 and the data collected was log data on how frequent students accessed various resources, e.g. quizzes, learning materials etc...
One of the reviewers has asked us to define what is a recorded as an access event. Could you define what an access event is?
For example is it just when the user clicks on the resource or is it possible when they restart an activity this is logged as an event? We have some quiz data that implies students commonly accessed it up to 50 times. Although this is possible, other quizzes were commonly accessed 2-3 times. So we were wondering why we might have this erroneous result?
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
