ANALYZING CONTEXTUAL DATA IN EDUCATIONAL CONTEXT: EDUCATIONAL DATA MINING AND LOGFILE ANALYSIS

Saleh Alrababah, Gyöngyvér Molnár.

Abstract
In recent decades,attention has been focused on analyzing contextual data in educational contextusingeducational
data mining (EDM), which is a process of employing data mining techniques to transform initial data collected
througheducational systems into meaningful information. Logfile analysis entails analyzing behavioral processes,
time-on-task, and the sequence of actions captured in logfiles and thusintroduces novel methods to the analysis of
the instruction and learning process as well as toeducational assessment.This research paper aims to present the
developmental trendsinEDM techniques and logfile analysis in educational context and their contribution to a better
understanding of the contextual data, collected beyond the particular responsedata.We conducted a comparison
analysis based on the Scopus database to show developmental trends by year and domain. According to the results,
(1) research interestin this field has grown immensely in the last few years; that is, EDM is an emerging discipline.
In addition, (2) EDM and logfile analysis examine earlier hidden informationto provide explanations ofstudents’
learning and testing behaviour from a new perspective, thus broadeningour understanding of students’ behavior,
interests, learning processes, motivational aspects, and test results and the reason for their learning outcomes

Key words: data mining, educational data mining, contextual data,logfile analyses
