What does it take to predict student risk?


There are both pedagogical and logistical advantages to developing predictive models of student course achievement that make exclusive use of data from the learning management system (LMS).

From a teaching and learning perspective, it means focusing less on factors over which students have no control (like demographics and educational history), and more on concrete, real-time behaviors that can be changed and that directly relate to student success.

However, models are not consistent across all institutions. Learn more about what it takes to create a successful model and how certain best practices that are necessary for supporting predictive modelling using LMS data also benefit students in other ways.
