Abstract Educational Data Mining (EDM) is an emerging discipline of increasing interest due to several factors, such as the adoption of learning management systems in education environment. In this work we analyze the predictive power of continuous evaluation activities with respect the overall student performance in physics course at Universidad Loyola Andalucíıa, in Seville, Spain. Such data was collected during the fall semester of 2018 and we applied several classification algorithms, as well as feature selection strategies. Results suggest that several activities are not really relevant and, so, machine learning techniques may be helpful to design new relevant and non-redundant activities for enhancing student knowledge acquisition in physics course. These results may be extrapolated to other courses. © 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
