Abstract

The main aim of this paper is, to investigate the factors that contribute to student success, and provide new ideas on how these factors could be used to offer adaptive learning in economics in a web based environment. First, there is a description of the most common factors that affect student performance in general. Afterwards, the paper focuses on possible variables that could affect student performance in economics and a statistical analysis is conducted, in order to derive an equation, which predicts student performance in economics. This equation could be used in the future from an e-learning platform to offer some kind of adaptation to the users, depending on social and economic factors, personal skills and prior knowledge in economics.
