eCSCDA: an Efficient System for Analyzing Contents of Computer Science Courses

EasyChair Preprint no. 6621

6 pagesDate: September 16, 2021


This paper aims to introduce a new efficient system, called eCSCDA, to efficient analyze Computer Science (CS) course description. The primary task of the system is to identify similar (and dissimilar) contents amount two (or a group of) CS course descriptions which can help to know similar and different focuses of important contents to teach to students. Moreover, it can help to check for integrity and quality and to set up a standard of teaching contents of the course. In eCSCDA, text processing procedure is newly rearranged and developed. Besides, the new updated linguistic rules and their derivation are applied. Moreover, two synonym corpuses, terminology and word synonyms, are designed and collected to consider synonyms of the keywords hidden in the course descriptions. Last, to efficiently identify similar contents, two new matching techniques, sub-keyword and semantic matching techniques, are designed and applied together with exact and subset (superset) matching methods. Experiments were conducted on CS course contents gathered from nine Thai Universities to examine the effectiveness of our proposed system in comparison with previous system and related methodologies. From the results, it shows that eCSCDA is efficient to analyze the course contents and outperforms other related systems in various terms e.g. percentage of similar contents, precision, recall and F-measure, respectively.

Keyphrases: computer science course, content analysis, Course description
