Data mining is efficiently used to extract potential patterns and associations for discovering the hidden knowledge from data that is collected from different sources. In this review emphasis is put on data mining algorithms used in field of Education mining, to highlight the need and consequently the application of data mining in this field. An importance of extracted knowledge in education domain has been discussed. Algorithms; C4.5, SVM, EM, PageRanker, Naive Bayes, Apriori and CART are important. This paper presents the significance of use of these algorithms in Education field.
