Background
The emerging discipline of Learning Engineering is focused on putting into place tools and processes that use the science of learning as a basis for improving educational outcomes. An important part of Learning Engineering focuses on improving the effectiveness of educational software. In many software domains, A/B testing has become a prominent technique to achieve the software’s goals, but educational software tends to lag other fields in the use of A/B testing, particularly at scale. This workshop will explore ways in which A/B testing in educational contexts differs from other domains and proposals to overcome these challenges so that A/B testing can become a more useful tool in the learning engineer’s toolbox.
