Characteristics of fuzzy synthetic decision methods for measuring student achievement

Characteristics of fuzzy synthetic decision methods for measuring student achievement Traditional method of student achievement evaluation only use arithmetic mean and convert them to rankings, but this does not provide further explanatory information to proceed with more reasonable evaluations, decisions, and interpretations for the learning achievements of students, and provide a fair and appropriate consideration of the evaluation results. Therefore, this study attempts to introduce four types of fuzzy synthetic decision methods in actual scores for evaluating and ranking student’s academic achievement. Using the synthetic decision method of fuzzy theory, the four types of composite operations are used in conjunction with the membership function, and finally fuzzy means are used to express the diverse evaluation results of students. This study uses junior high school first year students in central Taiwan as research subjects, selecting the actual mid-term exam results of the gifted class and general class as research data. The fuzzy synthetic decision method is applied through four types of composite operations, proposing a ranking system that is more diverse and precise than the traditional average method. Finally, this study proposes the characteristics of the four types of fuzzy composite operations, considering the most suitable composite operations for classes with different characteristics. Results of this study can be used as a reference for educators in the field and future researchers. The contribution of this study is to provide the fuzzy grade calculation methods that are suited to students with different characteristics, in order to achieve diverse and precise ranking evaluations.
