A Risk Metric for Educational Informatization Project Based on Information Entropy
Abstract—Education informatization is an important means of education reform and innovation by means
of the information technology. There are a large number of risk factors in the process of education
informationization project establishment, construction and management which can contribute to project
failure. Based on the related research results and characteristics of education informatization, this paper
provides a quantificational risk measurement model based on information entropy, and verify this model by
five different types of project data. The verification results show that this method can effectively measure
education informationization project risk.
Index Terms— information entropy, risk metric, educational informatization
