Based on the implementation of a newly developed e-learning technology which features Reproducible Computing (www.wessa.net and www.freestatistics.org), it is investigated how the relationships between learning outcomes (as measured by exam questions) and objectively measured, computer-assisted learning activities can be investigated. The main contribution of this paper is that objective exam score transformations can have a huge effect on our ability to build models and understand the effects of computer technology on learning outcomes. The paper includes a theoretical description of an easy-to-use methodology and an illustrated case in which the effect of exam score transformations is clearly demonstrated.
