A CBR System for Predicting Student Achievement

Dr. Stamos T. Karamouzis

Research in predicting student performance in an educational setting resulted in the development of an intelligent system that uses case-based reasoning in order to forecast student class performance. The system drew conclusions on the basis of similarities between a student’s current class performance and the performance of other students that attended the same class. This study evaluated the intelligent system and presents the results achieved. A Turing-like comparison, where the system’s performance was compared and contrasted with the prediction abilities of human instructors, placed the achieved results in perspective. Findings of the evaluation indicated that in comparison to humans the system outperformed non-expert instructors. Educators may develop similar systems that are customized to the structure of their own classes and are capable of assisting them in advising students on their class progress way before it is too late for the student.
