Researchers will present findings from a data-mining study analyzing behavioral data from course server logs and asynchronous forum posts from a K-12 virtual learning environment. Using a deep learning approach, our model could predict, with greater accuracy, student success or failure early in the term. Future directions for research inquiry and results will be shared, along with challenges around LMS data storage and analysis, and ways to improve prediction of at-risk students using machine learning.
