Abstract:Taking into account the marks of junior students from educational innovation projects of the “ADE-Derecho” degree from the Universitat de València, several factors potentially having an influence on these marks have shown to be statistically significant. Moreover the optimum operating condition (the mix of factor values maximizing the obtained marks in mean) has been obtained. In this work marks corresponding to the 2007-2008 year class were used, while the followed methodology was based on a 2k experiment. This kind of experiments (equilibrated factorial design) takes into account 2 possible levels for each factor, leading to simple models which provide accurate results when dichotomic variables are considered. The main aim of this work is to observe the time dependence of the optimum operating condition. Different year classes are considered and so the validity of the proposed model analyzed.
Keywords: Innovation project, academic performance, analysis of variance, optimum operating condition.
