Abstract: In this paper we present the results of am analysis process that is used to classify students using the quantity of the data traffic they transfer. We have performed students classification using data representing their activity (D.D Burdescu et. al. Dec. 2006). Generally speaking the correlation between executed actions and traffic is weak because dependencies are too weak or too complex (M. Sydow, 2005). Still, we propose an analysis process specially designed to be used within e-Learning platforms that predicts Web traffic data using only executed actions. Therefore, students classification using traffic data produces the same results as classification based on performed actions but with great benefits regarding computational time and complexity. We propose an algorithm for comparing two classifications made on students within an e-Learning platform. This algorithm may be used to validate the correlations between classification procedures that use different features.
