Abstract:


Student’s notes are evaluated to trace their learning process in a blended learning course, and the factors affecting the quality of these notes are discussed. As individual note-taking performance may be based on student’s characteristics, these contributions are also examined. Some factors about per-sonality and the learning experience are sig-nificant, and positively affect the grades given to notes. Lexical features of notes tak-en were extracted using a text analysis tech-nique, and these features were compared with the grades given. The good note-takers constantly recorded terms independently of the number of terms which was presented during the class. Conceptual mapping of the contents of notes was conducted, and it sug-gests that the deviation in the features of notes can be explained by the number of terms in a lesson.
