Title

Big data for predicting student success - limits and policy potential

Abstract

Students and educators bring an increasing amount of digital technology into the class room. We show the potential and limits for turning the data they collect into useful predictions. We explore the scope for estimating deep representations of students’ academic achievements prior to college admission and the potential to use this information in college admissions.
