In today's transnational admission environment, evaluating applicant qualifications is becoming increasingly challenging. While standardized tests can be helpful, studies have shown that they are rather noisy predictors of performance. Predicting educational outcome is a viable alternative in such heterogeneous environments. Performance prediction models can be built by applying data mining techniques to enrollment data. In this paper we present an approach to using Bayesian networks to predict… CONTINUE READING
