Abstract: For Programming teachers it is of utter most importance to understand the factors that impact on students’ motivation to improve their ability to become good computer programmers. To understand a problem, to develop an algorithm for its solution, and to write the corresponding program is a challenging and arduous task, demanding time and self-confidence. In previous work we studied computer based technics to engage students in the learning activity; visualization, animation, automatic program assessment were some approaches that we combined. To support that work we studied carefully students’ motivation and complemented that study with an inquiry to a group of students of Algorithm and Programming course of the first year of an Engineering degree. In this paper we show how Association Rules can be used to mine the data gathered in the inquiry to discover relationships among factors influencing extrinsic motivation.
