- A learning management system (LSM) prevails and it accumulates an amount of data about the progress of student learning, demographic and students’ background over different sessions. Educators are very concerned about the shifts of unknown relationships among a thousand variables about students in a LMS for adjusting their teaching strategies and pedagogies. However, educators are not satisfied with the traditional reports, which are explored with limited relative variables on the issue of summative assessment and learning achievement in static sessions. The information about the changes of un-known relationships among many varia-bles cannot be produced with statistical methods in traditional reports. Our study proposes a mining change of fuzzy quan-titative association rules model to reveal the information. This model can discover the six types of changes rules from un-known relationships among many varia-bles with nominal or numerical attributes. Experiments are carried out to evaluate the proposed model. We empirical demonstrate how the model helps educa-tors understand the changing characteris-tics of students and to modify their teaching practices.
