Flores, Raymond; Inan, Fethi; Lin, Zhangxi – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013
In this study, the National Educational Longitudinal Study (ELS:2002) dataset was used and a predictive data mining technique, decision tree analysis, was implemented in order to examine which factors, in conjunction to computer use, can be used to predict high or low probability of success in high school mathematics. Specifically, this study…
