Students Performance Prediction in Online Courses Using Machine Learning Algorithms
Advances in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) have increased the growth of Massive open online courses (MOOCs) applied in distance learning environments. Various tools have been utilized to deliver interactive content including pictures, figures, and videos that can motivate the learners to build new cognitive skills. High ranking universities have adopted MOOCs as an efficient dashboard platform where learners from around the world can participate in such courses. The students learning progress is evaluated by using set computer marked assessments. In particular, the computer gives immediate feedback to the student once he or she completes the online assessments. The researchers claim that student success rate in an online course can be related to their performance at the previous session in addition to the level of engagement. Insufficient attention has been paid by literature to evaluate whether student performance and engagement in the prior assessments could affect student achievement in the next assessments.
In this paper, two predictive models have been designed namely students’ assessments grades and final students’ performance. The models can be used to detect the factors that influence students’ learning achievement in MOOCs. The result shows that both models gain feasible and accurate results. The lowest RSME gain by RF acquire a value of 8.131 for students assessments grades model while GBM yields the highest accuracy in final students’ performance, an average value of 0.086 was achieved.
