Strategies For The Early Detection Of Evasion Propensity
Evasion is a concern for both onsite and D-Ed. courses. This paper presents the results of research about its causes. In addition to investigating references from other works about the same theme, we also developed a study using data derived from distance course learning for in-service teachers. This study and the accompanying research aim to diagnose the causes of evasion and to obtain evidence that helps to prevent situations contributing to evasion. There is an analysis of the records of course activities and an evaluation of computerbased communication strategies, i.e. with the aim of detecting evasion risk levels, as well as identifying relevant factors that lead to evasion. These data help to elicit indicators of student activity in distance learning courses, which, in turn, facilitates the identification of situations where there is a higher risk of evasion.
