Abstract

This research reports a case study which provides insights into primary students’ SRVL processes and behaviours that interact over time in authentic learning environments beyond the classroom, leveraged by a mobile app with a self-regulation scheme. The participants were 44 grade four students in a government-funded primary school in Mainland China. Data collection included log data on the app, and pre- and post-vocabulary tests. Data analysis included clustering, progress-mining techniques, and Kruskal Wallis tests. The findings showed that (1) students’ SRVL behaviours leveraged by a mobile app with a self-regulation scheme could be clustered into three groups, (2) the characteristics of SRVL behavioural patterns among three clusters were discussed, and (3) a significant association between the identified three clusters and the students’ vocabulary learning outcomes was observed.
