Title: FLEXIBLE, PERSONALIZED STUDENT SUCCESS MODELING FOR INSTITUTIONS WITH COMPLEX TERM STRUCTURES AND COMPETENCY-BASED EDUCATION
Abstract:
A flexible persistence modeling system and method for building flexible persistence models for education institutions using a Markov model based on units of academic progress of a non-traditional learning program of an education institution. The Markov model is used to quantify transitions of students between the states as parameters of state transitions so that features from the Markov model with the parameters of state transitions can be extracted that are related to the non-traditional learning program of the education institution using defined flexible persistence. The extracted features can then be used to build at least one flexible persistence model for different segments of the students.
