Information Systems and Computer Graphics

At CSIG, we are particularly well positioned to address complex and difficult engineering problems facing industry, as we have the expertise to analyse, design, mine and implement large information systems ‑ using best practices for designing, developing and testing software engineering ‑, and also to provide the visual and user interaction components such a solution may require.

Furthermore, at CSIG we are also strongly committed to training young researchers and professionals. Presently, our researchers come from the University of Porto, Polytechnic of Porto, University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, Universidade Aberta and University of Minho.

Our centre addresses five main areas of research: Computer Graphics and Virtual Environments, Information Management and Information Systems, Software Engineering, Accessibility and Assistive Technologies and Special Purpose Computing Systems/Embedded Systems.

ERCIM NEWS

Abstract
The great ambition of using games as the cornerstone of education is hindered by its associated teaching workload. The BEACONING project developed a framework based on an authoring tool for gamified lesson paths, which has been rolled-out in large scale across Europe. It includes stages for planning game-based educational activities, plus their deployment, monitoring, and assessment.

Introduction to the Special Issue on Technology-Based Writing Instruction: A Collection of Effective Tools

Authors
Limpo, T; Nunes, A; Coelho, A;

Publication
JOURNAL OF WRITING RESEARCH

Abstract
This article introduces a Special Issue that gathers a collection of effective tools to promote the teaching and learning of writing in school-aged and university students, across varied contexts. The authors present the theoretical rationale and technical specificities of writing tools aimed at enhancing writing processes (e.g., spelling, revising) and/or at providing writers with automated feedback to improve the implementation of those processes. The tools are described in detail, along with empirical data on their effectiveness in improving one or more aspects of writing. All articles conclude by indicating future directions for further developing and evaluating the tools. This Special Issue represents an important contribution to the field of technology-based writing instruction, in a moment in which online teaching and learning tools have shifted from being an instructional asset to a necessity. We hope that in the future the validation of each tool can be expanded by reaching out to different populations and cultural contexts.

Evaluation of a temporal causal model for predicting the mood of clients in an online therapy

EVIDENCE-BASED MENTAL HEALTH

Abstract
Background Self-reported client assessments during online treatments enable the development of statistical models for the prediction of client improvement and symptom development. Evaluation of these models is mandatory to ensure their validity. Methods For this purpose, we suggest besides a model evaluation based on study data the use of a simulation analysis. The simulation analysis provides insight into the model performance and enables to analyse reasons for a low predictive accuracy. In this study, we evaluate a temporal causal model (TCM) and show that it does not provide reliable predictions of clients' future mood levels. Results Based on the simulation analysis we investigate the potential reasons for the low predictive performance, for example, noisy measurements and sampling frequency. We conclude that the analysed TCM in its current form is not sufficient to describe the underlying psychological processes. Conclusions The results demonstrate the importance of model evaluation and the benefit of a simulation analysis. The current manuscript provides practical guidance for conducting model evaluation including simulation analysis.
