Predictive modeling can help identify students who may be “at-risk” to drop out from an online course. An early detection of academically at-risk students will allow instructors and advisors to proactively use appropriate retention strategies. The purpose of this paper is to perform a study to analyze variables and construct a predictive model uniquely suited to identify students who may be more likely to drop out from an online course.
