Educational data mining applications are widely accepted now a day as they will help in analyzing and predicting information’s useful for enhancing educational growth. One of the major applications of this kind is the prediction of student performance in higher education. This will help the stakeholders to understand the effect of various factors in academic performance thereby enabling them to take immediate and adequate remedial actions. This research aims to understand the various attributes and their impact on the students’ academic performance. A synthetic dataset is chosen to experiment with the various data mining algorithms. Further a real time data set collected from a high school is also experimented with similar algorithms.
