The effects of typing demand on learner's Motivation/Attitude-driven Behaviour (MADB) model with mouse and keystroke behaviours

Abstract

It would be desirable to have an automated means of assessing a learner's motivation and stress levels in an e-learning system, which would give impact on his or her learning performance. This preliminary research examines the effects of typing task demand on Motivation/Attitude-driven Behavior (MADB) model. The model is adapted from what was proposed by Wang [1], which is used to describe how the motivation process drives human behaviours and actions, and how the attitude and decision-making process help to regulate and determine the action to be taken by the learner. The effects of typing demand are tested on learners' stress perceptions, motivation, attitudes, decision, as well as their mouse and keystroke behaviours. The typing demand is varied by the pre-defined text length and language familiarity. The results of Multivariate Analysis of Variance and correlation tests are generally congruent with the MADB model proposed by Wang, but with minor difference. We also found that a learner's behaviour is significantly correlated to his or her mouse and keystroke behaviours. A revised version of MADB model based on e-learning environment is proposed.
