Abstract
In the paper, we have described the motivation and design of the VA tool EDAIME which is intended for exploratory analysis of educational data. We enhanced the concept of Motion Charts and successfully expanded it to be more suitable for such analyses. We have successfully employed it to verify the suggested hypothesis. A further in-depth analysis with different mapping of variables is needed to quantify the correlations more accurately. Despite the fact that common data visualization methods are quite beneficial, there are types of questions that cannot be examined using them. Since the questions involve quantitative relationship other than change through time.
