Methodology for Obtaining a Predictive Model Academic Performance of Students from First Partial Note and Percentage of Absence


Objectives: This study presents the methodology for a model of multiple linear regression to assess the impact of the first partial grade and the percentage of non - attendance in the final grade students. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Descriptive Statistics and Inferential a program Industrial engineering a university in Colombia. Findings: After the generation and validation of the model was obtained that it explains 83.38% of the variability of the final grade students analyzed (134 students), and this significantly high percentage as a tool to determine the outcome of a student and generate recovery strategies those with a very low projection in its final note, it should be noted that the model was rigorously validated statistically. Application/Improvements: This methodology is proposed as a model for similar studies in other institutions.
