CALVACHE, Juan Felipe; PEREZ, Sergio Andrés  e  MORENO, Francisco Javier. A MODEL BASED ON FACTORS AND RULES TO QUANTIFY THE AFFINITY AMONG THE INDIVIDUALS OF A HUMAN GROUP. Cienc. Ing. Neogranad. [online]. 2015, vol.25, n.2, pp.117-136. ISSN 0124-8170.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15665/re.v13i1.348.

In this paper we propose a model to quantify the degree of affinity among the individuals of a human group. To obtain the degree of affinity, our model considers a set of factors and a set of rules (for each factor) which are defined by the analyst. Our model can be virtually applied to any human group: students, employees, members of a social network, etc. To validate and show the expediency of our model, we analyzed two groups of university courses. The students' data, corresponding to the factors identified for the experiments, were collected using a survey that was designed for this purpose. Although more extensive experiments are required, our results showed possible patterns, e.g., the groups of students with higher affinity were the groups with the highest average grades. It was also noted that there are certain individuals who tend to be members of the higher affinity groups and some who tend to be members of the lowest affinity groups.
