Title
Inputlog: a logging tool for the research of writing processes
Author
Abstract
The use of computers as writing instruments has not only had a profound effect on the writing practice and the attitudes towards writing, it has also created new possibilities for writing research. In the field of cognitive writing research especially, keystroke logging programs have become very popular. In this paper we describe a new logging program, called Inputlog. The program consists of three modules: (1) a data collection module that registers on line writing processes on a very detailed level; (2) a data analysis module that offers basic and more advanced statistical analyses (e.g. text and pause analysis); (3) a play module that enables researchers to review the writing session. The technical and functional description of Inputlog is complemented by two examples of research studies in which the program was used. We wind up the paper with a preview of the plans for further developments.
