Abstract

Abstract: Designing, implementing and assessing the effects of classroom-based learning experiences spans across a wide variety of methodological, epistemological and design-related issues. Additionally, the use of data mining and computational methods for supporting qualitative data analyses is still new to the field. Potentially because of this, we received ten good, but quite different commentary questions, which we have organized under five headings. In this response, we address each of them to provide a more thorough background or reasoning behind the decisions we made in our target article.
