Predictive Modelling in Teaching and Learning

Christopher Brooks & Craig Thompson


This article describes the process, practice, and challenges of using predictive modelling in teaching and learning. In both the fields of educational data mining (EDM) and learning analytics (LA) predictive modelling has become a core practice of researchers, largely with a focus on predicting student success as operationalized by academic achievement. In this chapter, we provide a general overview of considerations when using predictive modelling, the steps that an educational data scientist must consider when engaging in the process, and a brief overview of the most popular techniques in the field.
