Data-Mining and Predicting Academic Success: A Recommendation System for College Students
Whitten, Leah; Sanders, Anthony
Educational Technology, v53 n4 p40-42 Jul-Aug 2013
While engaged in academic reading, a university provost converged on an idea to use a preferential approach to students' selection of college courses, similar to the recommendation systems used by "Netflix" and "Amazon." The result of this idea came to be known as "Degree Compass" and was implemented on the campus of Austin Peay State University in 2011. This article discusses the idea, the program, some background, and students' perceptions regarding the use of the recommendation system at the university.
