Uncertain Formal Concept Analysis for the Analyze of a Course Satisfaction Questionnaire

Guillaume Petiot

Abstract

The Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) is a method of data analysis often used in data mining. This method proposes to build a collection of formal concepts from a set of objects and their properties. These formal concepts can be ordered to provide a concept lattice. Several researches have demonstrated a link between the possibility theory and the formal concept analysis. Thus, it is possible to take into account the uncertainties of the properties by using the possibility theory before propagating them during the computation of the formal concepts. We propose in this paper an experimentation of the uncertain formal concept analysis for the extraction of knowledge in a satisfaction questionnaire for a course of professionalization in bachelor. Some questions can be open questions where the answers provided by students are given freely. For this purpose, we perform a text mining processing in order to categorize and classify the answers. During this processing, uncertainties can appear. In this research, we will handle these uncertainties by using the uncertain formal concept analysis. Then, we will extract the uncertain formal concepts from the concept lattice by using queries and represent the reduced lattice concepts with a visualization tool.
