Table 6 Comparison of the standardized SNA measures

From: Patterns of student collaborative learning in blended course designs based on their learning orientations: a student approaches to learning perspective

n Standardized SNA measures UC MC RC
1 Average degree (average collaborations) 2.361 2.218 1.607
2 Betweenness (capacity of students to gather information) 0.0025 0.0006 0.0007
3 Closeness (total distance to reach other students) 0.545 0.606 0.775
4 Eccentricity (distance to reach students in the furthest in the
network)
3.625 3.064 1.911
5 Eigenvector (connection strength to neighbourhood nodes) 0.233 0.249 0.163
6 Network clustering coefficient (tendency to form closely knitted groups) 0.323 0 0
7 Network density (collaboration intensity) 0.025 0.015 0.024
8 Network modularity (discernibility of collaborative groups) 0.872 0.920 0.937
