Abstract: The Contextual Activity Sampling System (CASS) research methodology and the CASS-Query mobile application have been developed for contextually tracking of participants' object-oriented activities. The method relies on Ecological Momentary Assessment designed to trace real-time advancement of learning activities by frequent sampling during periods of intensive follow-up. The paper presents a subset of findings from the first year data-collection from five groups of students, regarding their knowledge practices while studying in a higher education context. The study reports affects, challenge, competence, and commitment, together with the information about interaction and context, collected using mobile phones in an intensive two-week follow-up period. Results revealed that different contexts were associated with variable combinations of challenge and competence. Further, studying in a library and a small group were related to the highest ratings of optimal experience and commitment.
