MOLERO-CASTILLO, Guillermo; MALDONADO-HERNANDEZ, Gabriel; MEZURA-GODOY, Carmen  and  BENITEZ-GUERRERO, Edgard. Interactive System for the Analysis of Academic Achievement at the Upper-Middle Education in Mexico. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp.223-233. ISSN 1405-5546.

In recent years, there is an interest to find new ways to analyze and process data from different sources. One of these ways is through user-centered data mining, based on the fundamentals of the usability engineering and accessibility. The academic achievement, at Language and Communication and Mathematics, of students at the upper-middle education in Mexico was analyzed through a partitional clustering algorithm. A variety of academic achievements were observed, highlighting Insufficient and Elementary in the evaluated population, while Good and Excellent achievements were achieved by a reduced number of schools. This contrasts a notable difference between the achievements of the students, leading them to delay or stop their university studies because they obtain a certificate without the knowledge to pass the college entrance exams.

Keywords : Academic achievement; data mining; interactive systems; user-centered design.
