What students answer when discussing about citation practices

This document explain how data were generated and how to interpret them.   

 

LICENSE: CC0
But if you want to combine data with other datasets, feel free to use them as if they were published under CC0 license.   
Data were published in February 2017. At that time, Zenodo only provided CC BY, CC BY-SA, CC BY-NC, CC BY-ND and CC BY-NC-ND. No CC0 option was available.

 

HOW DATA WERE COLLECTED
The 21 recorded sessions took place between February 2013 and December 2016.   
Data were collected using Turning Technologies' remote controls (called *clickers*) and TurningPoint software.

The 4 versions of the quiz used during these 4 years are provided in the 'quizzes' folder for information purpose (in PDF and Powerpoint formats).

Turning Technologies records data in a closed format (.tpzx) that can be exported and converted them into 3 formats provided here (these 3 files contain the same data):

* Excel (.xslx)
* Comma-spearated values (.csv)
* SQLite (.sqlite)

The first one was directly exported from TurningPoint and is provided for Excel users who can't read CSV correctly.   
CSV was converted from Excel and is provided for non-Excel users.   
Finally, SQLite is provided in order to apply different sorting and filters to the data. It can be read using SQLite manager for Firefox ([https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/sqlite-manager/](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/sqlite-manager/)).
