Abstract: This document aims to reflect the results obtained at SPEET project under the development of the data mining tools are presented. More specifically, two mechanisms have been developed: a clustering/classification scheme of students in terms of academic performance and a drop-out prediction system. The students’ clustering and classification schemes are presented in detail. More specifically, a description of the considered machine learning algorithms can be found. Results show how groups of clusters can be automatically identified and how new students can be classified into existing groups with a high accuracy. Finally, the implemented drop-out prediction system is considered by presenting several algorithms alternatives. In this case, the evaluation of the dropout mechanism is focused on one institution, showing a prediction accuracy around 91 %. Algorithms presented at this document are available at repositories or inline code format, as accordingly indicated.
