DATA MINING
Educational Data Mining focuses on
measurement, collection, analysis and
reporting of data about learners and their
contexts for purposes of understanding
and optimizing learning and their
environments in which learning occurs.
This includes a wide scope of problems
from formal and informal learning
environments. For example, such data
might include the movement of patrons through a museum, or the sequence of actions that
students take while solving problems in an adaptive computer tutoring system.
Educational Data Mining draws from several fields including statistics, psychometrics, machine
learning, information retrieval, and scientific computing to analyze data generated by systems that
support learning or education.
Course Description
Course provides introduction to theory and application
of common techniques along with current issues in the
field.
Part 1: Common supervised & unsupervised statistical
learning methods including; k-means, nearest neighbor,
gaussian mixture modeling, tree-based methods, linear
discriminant analysis, support vector machines, and
other separating hyper-planes. Part 2: Review of current literature in educational data
mining. Topics may include modeling student learning in
intelligent tutoring systems, modeling student affect,
engagement, and self-regulation, or analyzing complex
behavioral data, such as participation in online
discussion forums.
