Education data mining plays an important role in predicting students' performance,. It is a very promising discipline which has an imperative impact. In this paper students' performance is evaluated and some attributes are selected which generate rules by means of association rule mining. Artificial neural network checks accuracy of the results. A multi-layer perception neural network is employed for selection of interesting features using 10 - fold cross validation. The artificial neural network selects 5 out of 8 attributes based on the accuracy obtained for correctly classified data.
