Abstract
The article deals with some challenges concerning decision support system (DSS) development for selection of a cooperation form between a higher educational institution and potential students. Nowadays Russian higher educational institutions have to compete with each other to attract best potential students to their educational programs. The selection of the most effective cooperation forms with potential students is a problem for higher educational institutions. For better results University activities should be targeted, meet individual peculiarities of potential students. The paper proposes to select a cooperation form with a glance to potential students' ability to study the programme. We have worked out a conception of an automated decision support system for selection of a cooperation form between a higher educational institution and a potential student. We have developed software for DSS main functions: 1. Evaluation model for assessing applicants' ability to study IT programmes on the basis of a discriminant analysis method; 2. Evaluation model for assessing activity effectiveness to select an appropriate activity set for applicants potentially able to study a particular programme. To approbate a proposed approach with the help of DSS we have done an experimental study to select some cooperation forms between Yurga Institute of Technology, Tomsk Polytechnic University affiliate (YuTI TPU) and applicants potentially able to study IT programmes.
