Rough sets for mining educational data
MetadataShow full item record
While educational data are typically analyzed with statistical software, data mining techniques are increasingly appropriate in revealing complex relationships among multiple variables in large amounts of data. We experimented with the rough set method in conjunction with statistical analysis to identify patterns in, and thereby extract meaning from, complex educational data. Results establish the benefits of combining rough set decision making with stochastic analysis in mining exceedingly complex and difficult to interpret educational data sets.
