A View of Both Worlds: Combining Data-Driven and Theory-Driven Approaches in Education Assessment
The field of educational assessment has seen significant growth in recent years, thanks to the huge amount of data generated by large-scale assessments. This has led to an increase in quantitative researchers in the field, using both traditional methods of data analysis and more modern techniques like machine learning and data mining. These new approaches offer powerful tools for making out-of-sample predictions, providing deeper insights into the data. During this presentation, Rogerio will share his ongoing research on developing new tools to support decision-making in education. He will present findings from his analysis combining traditional and modern techniques using the ENEM and School Census data from 2009 to 2019.
