Abstract

Data mining is a process of extracting hidden information from huge volumes of data. The various data mining techniques used are Classification, Clustering and Association mining. All these techniques can be applied to educational data to predict a student's academic performance and also to determine the areas he is currently lacking in. The student can evaluate his performance and find out area to improve. While calculating a student's performance a student's marks in previous semesters and his term test marks, attendance and other factors. This paper proposes the use of One R algorithm and Frequency table to predict the "score" which determines how important a particular area is. The accuracy of this algorithm can be measured by comparing the predicted score with the actual score. Teachers can forward the result of student's report. They can also determine which students are currently lacking based on their marks and other factors. Using this data teacher can motivate a student to improve his performance in a particular area. Also students can view the report themselves and can make improvements based on area which they are lacking in.
