Abstract

This Major Qualifying Project built many statistical models of students. The models were created using the R statistical computing software package and datasets from the KDD 2010 competition. The models predicted whether a student would answer correctly or incorrectly a given question based on his past performance. A major component of this MQP was learning practical methods of cleaning, transforming and preparing data for datamining.
