  author={Miriam Wagner and Hayyan Helal and Rene Roepke and Sven Judel and Jens Doveren and Sergej Goerzen and Pouya Soudmand and Gerhard Lakemeyer and Ulrik Schroeder and Wil M.P. van der Aalst},
. This paper presents an approach of using methods of process mining and rule-based artificial intelligence to analyze and understand study paths of students based on campus management system data and study program models. Process mining techniques are used to characterize successful study paths, as well as to detect and visualize deviations from expected plans. These insights are combined with recommendations and requirements of the corresponding study programs extracted from examination… 

Figures from this paper



Process Mining Online Assessment Data

The applicability of process mining, and the ProM framework in particular, to educational data mining context is demonstrated and the use of process discovery, conformance checking and performance analysis techniques are demonstrated.

Discovering Process in Curriculum Data to Provide Recommendation

A process model of students taking courses is discovered, the paths that successful and less successful students tend to take are compared and discrepancies between them are highlighted to assist teachers and administrators to understand students behavior, to recommend the correct path to students, and to enhance the design of a curriculum.

Sequence Matching Analysis for Curriculum Development

Many organizations apply information technologies to support their business processes. Using the information technologies, the actual events are recorded and utilized to conform with predefined

Reviewing Process Mining Applications and Techniques in Education

A systematic review of the recent and current status of research in the EPM domain is presented, focusing on application domains, techniques, tools and models, to highlight the use of EPM in comprehending and improving educational processes.

Discovering learning processes using Inductive Miner: A case study with Learning Management Systems (LMSs)

The Inductive Miner algorithm produced the best results in the tests on this dataset, especially for fitness, which is the most important criterion in terms of model discovery, when weighted according to their importance.

Discovering and Mapping LMS Course Usage Patterns to Learning Outcomes

It is indicated that a better understanding of online course usage patterns and its relationship with learning outcomes can be used to develop intelligent systems (recommender systems, intelligent agents, intelligent personal assistants etc.) that can improve students’ learning process.

    Knowledge Management & E-Learning: An International Journal
  • 2022
Online learning implementation has been growing year by year across countries, including Indonesia. Many higher education institutions use a Learning Management System (LMS) to facilitate online

Backpack Process Model (BPPM): A Process Mining Approach for Curricular Analytics

Differences between backpack trajectories that resulted in retention or in dropout were found; specific courses in the backpack and a larger initial backpack sizes were associated with a higher proportion of dropout.

Process Mining: Data science in Action

Process mining bridges the gap between traditional model-based process analysis and datacentric analysis techniques such as machine learning and data mining, and can be applied to any type of operational processes.

A survey on educational process mining

This paper introduces EPM and elaborates on some of the potential of this technology in the educational domain and describes some other relevant, related areas such as intentional mining, sequential pattern mining and graph mining.
