Data-Driven Approach Towards a Personalized Curriculum

EasyChair Preprint no. 309

6 pagesDate: June 29, 2018


Course selection can be a daunting task, especially for newer students. Sub-optimal selection can lead to bad performance of students and increase the dropout rate. Given the availability of historic data about student performances, it is possible to aid students in the selection of appropriate courses. Here, we propose a method to compose a personalized curriculum for a given student. We develop a modular approach that combines a context-aware grade prediction with statistical information on the temporal ordering of courses. This allows for meaningful course recommendations, both for fresh and senior students. We demonstrate the approach using the data of the Computer Science Bachelor students at Saarland University.

Keyphrases: collaborative filtering, Personalized Curriculum, Recommender Systems
