Brief Description of Dataset The dataset contains information about students in a 5-year Bachelor of Technology Degree in Computer Science from a North Eastern Nigerian University of Technology. The year of enrolment of the students ranges from 2005 to 2015. In the dataset, “NA” means that the student did not attempt the course. Data Cleaning First steps: the student marks that are less than 40 are excluded, as the course has to be retaken to be passed with a minimum of 50 marks. In addition, courses that are taken outside of graduation audit by students are eliminated. There were 430 students screened for enrolment in the study with 95 being excluded because they did not take the course within the period of degree program for their early exemption. The exact ages of the participants are unknown other than all students enrolled were aged above 18 years of age.
