Learning Analytics: The Number of Admissible Successes and the Number of Actual Successes in the LCT
learning check testing
follow-up program testing
item response theory
To make increase the attendance rate to the FPC (follow-up program class), we have designed the admissible success to the LCT (learning check testing) which works as the compensation to the failed LCT result such that the number of admissible successes to the LCT equals to the number of successful LCT and the number of attendance to the FPC. When the number of admissible LCT becomes lower than the pre-specified number, say ten times, students may lose the chance to take the final examination. Thus, this number and the admissible LCT might be an incentive to attend the FPC and to make effort to tackle the mathematical exercises. We have found that the rate of the total number of failed times to the LCT to the total number of LCT is about 5%, and thus, ten out of fifteen (total number of lecture times) may be the critical number for the failure to the final examination.
