Visualizing Repertory Grid Data for Formative Assessment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


Repertory grid tools systematically collect data that consists of a topic,
its elements, constructs and element ratings. Gaining meaningful insights
from repertory grids data is a challenge because data analysis is timeconsuming
and a significant mental effort is needed. Visualizations aim at facilitating
data analysis through a visual and interactive approach, which allows users
to understand their data, reflect, and make better decisions. This paper presents
an interactive visualization tool for teachers and students. The tool visualizes
repertory grid data using two dashboards, where teachers and students can
investigate constructs and rating elements of students at the individual or group
level. Visualizing the repertory grid data is an initial attempt towards teaching
analytics. Future work will focus on evaluating the tool in a real setting with
teachers and students, and collecting suggestions for improvement.
