Methods that draw on learning analytics, such as educational data mining (Baker & Siemens, Chapter 13, this volume) and whole-brain methods in cognitive neuroscience, for example, contradict this pattern. Similarly, though a great deal of qualitative research aligns with systemic approaches, some, such as think aloud reports, are used to factor out elemental processes from task and environmental inluences. Levels of Analysis Scientists study complex systems at different levels of analysis: some phenomena are better studied by analyzing the complete system (the “higher” level of analysis), and other phenomena are better studied by reductively analyzing the system in terms of its component elements (“lower” levels of analysis).
