AbstractThis paper examines different models of dependencies of students` performance score on student involvement in different activities (for last three years). The empirical basis of the study is the monitoring of education and career paths of students and graduates of the School of Pedagogy of the Far Eastern Federal University. Three types of social activities are proposed by the author: participation in the Olympiads, getting diplomas for good studying and getting the winning places in sports competitions. The recent social experiences dramatically affect current academic performance. This paper suggests two classification models to reveal interrelationships between students` progress and their participation in competitive situations: logistic regression and classification tree. Classification models quality was evaluated using Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) analysis. Data were visualized using correspondence analysis.
