Abstract: Analysis and evaluation of CSCL activities are valuable for both building new knowledge in the research field, and for informing the practice of the design and support of collaborative activities. A major objective regards the development and use of analysis tools that are simultaneously appropriate for conducting meaningful evaluations of collaborative processes and efficient for practical use. This article adopts an innovative approach to CSCL analysis, involving the use of a rating scheme for the assessment of collaboration quality in several of its core dimensions. It involves appropriately trained evaluators that assign ratings on significant aspects of collaboration. Based on statistical analyses of ratings of 228 collaborating dyads working synchronously on a computer science problem-solving task, it reports and interprets interesting findings concerning general trends of collaborative practice, associations between dimensions of collaboration quality, and the way they relate to the quality of the problem's solution.
