Measuring collaboration in educational wikis - a methodological discussion
Abstract Measuring the collaboration in collaboratiMeasuring the collaboration in collaborative learning scenarios is important for assessment and research purposes. This paper describes the methodology developed in the Open University of Israel {(OUI)} to measure collaboration among students in wikis. It opens with an overview of the methods used to measure collaboration in Wikipedia, proceeds with explaining why these methods are not suitable enough for measuring collaboration in an educational wiki setting, and concludes by presenting a new method for measuring collaboration in educational wikis.suring collaboration in educational wikis.

Conclusion Measuring collaboration in educational wikMeasuring collaboration in educational wikis is different from measuring collaboration in public open wikis like Wikipedia. Measuring collaboration by counting the number of editors per page is not enough in the educational setting. It could indicate the degree of participation in the assignment but would not reflect the intensity of collaboration among the group members. In order to be more accurate in the measurement of collaboration of the group work, and in order to be able to compare groups and to rank them by the intensity of collaboration they have produced, it is better to measure the degree of intensity of collaboration among the members alongside the number of editors per page. alongside the number of editors per page.

Theories “The topic-attention quality model” develo“The topic-attention quality model” developed by [10] is a tool to measure the quality of an article by calculating the number of authors, the number of edits (versions) and the number of views per article. This research was conducted on the German Wikipedia and its findings indicate that “the number of editors” variable has the most dominant impact on the quality of the article. This outcome supports [11] theory about the wisdom of crowds. [10] Brändle A, 2005.
