Siebra, Clauirton Albuquerque; Santos, Ramon N.; Lino, Natasha C. Q. – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2020
This work proposes a dropout prediction approach that is able to self-adjust their outcomes at any moment of a degree program timeline. To that end, a rule-based classification technique was used to identify courses, grade thresholds and other attributes that have a high influence on the dropout behavior. This approach, which is generic so that it…
