AbstractWe seek £66,375 of first phase funding for the development of a piece of research software which keeps an audit trail of activities performed during academic writing e.g. what parts of what pages are viewed in the web browser, what searches are made, what is typed, copied and pasted and where and when and so on. We believe that audit trails would be invaluable not just as a means for better understanding student and research work patterns and behaviour, but also to enable development of cross-comparative statistical testing to improve assessment reliability without impacting validity of learning objectives.
