  • Published 2014
1 Participation-based Student Final Performance Prediction Model through Interpretable 1 Genetic Programming: Integrating Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining and 2 Theory 3 4 5 ABSTRACT 6 Building a student performance prediction model that is both practical and understandable for users is a 7 challenging task fraught with confounding factors to collect and measure. Traditionally, most prediction 8 models are difficult for teachers without a significant background in probability to… 
Exploring students' learning attributes in consecutive lessons to improve prediction performance
A new approach is proposed in building a practical model by identifying a number of attributes in comment data that reflect students' learning attitudes, tendencies and activities involved with the lesson.

This mixed-method study explores the relationships between student grade and key learning engagement factors using a large sample from an online undergraduate business course at an accredited American university.
Data Model Building for Online Teachers' Professional Development
Online Teachers' Professional Development (TPD) has become an important way to enhance their professional capacity. However, it is difficult to evaluate teachers' performances in online TPD. Due to
Identifying Dominant Characteristics of Students’ Cognitive Domain on Clustering-based Classification
This work proposes a discretization method on logistic regression to determine the most optimal number of clusters and introduces a technique that combines the features selection using a filterand wrapper-based procedures (HFS) to identify the dominant features of the students' cognitive domains.
Theory Informed Learning Analyics: The Power of Big Data in Digital Age
A system of rapid automated assessment of student participation and performance quality in collaborative learning in rapid automated assessments for knowledge management conferences is proposed.
Integrating Data Mining Into Managerial Accounting System: Challenges and Opportunities
Data mining involves extracting information from large data sets, discovering the hidden relationships and unknown dependencies, and supporting strategic decision-making tasks. The alignment of data
This study proposes a novel system for detecting different types of EDoS attacks by developing a system that learns from normal and abnormal behaviors and classifies them, and allocates extra demanding resources to VMs found to be in a normal situation to prevent attack and resource dissemination from the cloud environment.


Predicting GPA and academic dismissal in LMS using educational data mining: A case mining
In this paper, we describe an educational data mining (EDM) case study based on the data collected from learning management system (LMS) of e-learning center and electronic education system of Iran
Student success system: risk analytics and data visualization using ensembles of predictive models
A core research challenge for designing early warning systems such as S3 is discussed and an ensemble method for predictive modeling using a strategy of decomposition is proposed, which provides a flexible technique for generating and generalizing predictive models across different contexts.
Improving retention: predicting at-risk students by analysing clicking behaviour in a virtual learning environment
Predicting student failure by looking for changes in user's activity in the VLE, when compared against their own previous behaviour, or that of students who can be categorised as having similar learning behaviour is revealed.
Course correction: using analytics to predict course success
A predictive analytic model is created for the University of Phoenix to identify students who are in danger of failing the course in which they are currently enrolled and to prioritize students for intervention and referral to additional resources.
Predicting Student Grades in Learning Management Systems with Multiple Instance Genetic Programming.
A grammar guided genetic programming algorithm, G3P-MI, has been applied to predict if the student will fail or pass a certain course and identifies activities to promote learning in a positive or negative way from the perspective of Multiple Instance Learning (MIL).
Can we predict success from log data in VLEs? Classification of interactions for learning analytics and their relation with performance in VLE-supported F2F and online learning
The main finding from this research is that, for each classification, there is a relation between some type of interactions and academic performance in online courses, whereas this relation is non-significant in the case of VLE-supported F2F courses.
Predicting students' final performance from participation in on-line discussion forums
To determine how the selection of instances and attributes, the use of different classification algorithms and the date when data is gathered affect the accuracy and comprehensibility of the prediction, a new Moodle module for gathering forum indicators was developed and different executions were carried out.
Predicting Correctness of Problem Solving from Low-level Log Data in Intelligent Tutoring Systems
A learning based metho d that can automatically determine how likely a student is to give a correct answer to a problem in an intelligent tutoring system is proposed.
The Effect of Model Granularity on Student Performance Prediction Using Bayesian Networks
The results show that the finer the granularity of the skill model, the better the authors can predict student performance for their online data, and it was the 39 skill model that performed the best for the standardized test data.
Using Activity Theory to Understand the Systemic Tensions Characterizing a Technology-Rich Introductory Astronomy Course
In this report of our research on a computer-based three-dimensional (3-D) modeling course for learning astronomy, we use the central tenets of activity theory to analyze participation by
