A Novel Evaluative Method of the Subject “Education and Society” of the Autonomous University of the Andes, Ecuador, based on Plithogenic Numbers
Keywords:Higher education, syllabus, plithogenic number, decision-making
The subject “Education and Society” is part of the syllabus of the “Basic Education” program of the Autonomous
University of the Andes, Ecuador. This subject has the complexity of linking different aspects of society, some of them not free
from contradictions among themselves, and imprecision and uncertainties in assessing students’ performance. For this reason,
the concepts and aspects to be evaluated on this subject are represented through the use of plithogenic numbers. Plithogenic sets
were defined to model concepts arising from the dynamic interaction among other simpler ones, which may have contradictions
with each other and include neutralities or indeterminacies. This research aims to propose a novel method for the evaluation of
the subject “Education and Society” through the use of plithogenic numbers and their operators. The lecturers will be able to
perform the evaluations with the use of natural language; in the same way, the results will be given using a linguistic scale, which
will facilitate the understanding and representation of the evaluations. On the other hand, plithogenic numbers will allow
capturing the complexity, imprecision, and uncertainty that lecturers may face in their evaluations.
