Student performance, Influencing factors, Performing factors, Model formulation, Binary logistic regression, University examination.



This study was carried out to establish a mathematical relationship between influencing factors and the performance of engineering students in university examination. Pass/fail result in university examination was taken as performance measure. The exhaustive literature survey was carried out to explore the significant factors which influence the performance of university students. Also the opinion of stakeholders i.e. students and faculties was taken to add few more important factors in the list. Finally, 22 most important influencing factors were shortlisted for inclusion in the final questionnaire. This survey was conducted amongst the engineering students of technical institutions of Chhattisgarh, affiliated to Chhattisgarh Swami Vivekananda Technical University, Bhilai. Binary logistic regression method was used to formulate the mathematical model. This work will help the engineering students to improve their performance by predicting their probability of passing before appearing in examination.
