Reviewing Process Mining Applications and Techniques in Education


Athanasios Sypsas and Dimitris Kalles, Hellenic Open University, Greece


Process Mining (PM) emerged from business process management but has recently been applied to educational data and has been found to facilitate the understanding of the educational process. Educational Process Mining (EPM) bridges the gap between process analysis and data analysis, based on the techniques of model discovery, conformance checking and extension of existing process models. We present a systematic review of the recent and current status of research in the EPM domain, focusing on application domains, techniques, tools and models, to highlight the use of EPM in comprehending and improving educational processes.
