Abstract Title: Uncovering Long-Term Trends in Students' Engagement with Online Homework
Abstract: A decade ago, web-based online homework was still somewhat of a novelty
for many instructors; today it's a standard fixture in the introductory
physics course.  As online homework usage has grown, the ways in which
students interact with this resource have changed.  We present the
analysis of seven years' worth of student usage data from one
institution using the open-source LON-CAPA system.  What implications do
the evolving patterns of student activity have for instructors who want
to maximize the pedagogical effectiveness of online homework?
