Paper published on Pair Modeling with DynaLearn

In this study we employed Pair Modeling, which is an adaptation of the pair programming technique that is used for enhancing collaborative programming both in the industry and in academia. In this paper we present encouraging results for the use of this collaboration technique based on assignments’ scores, observations, and a questionnaire.
