Data Mining in Education- An Experimental Study
Data mining first proved to be beneficial to business related fields such as marketing and consumer related service enhancements. Slowly it has made its way toward other fields such as medicine, science, engineering, and education. The focus of this paper is to review several applications of data mining in education and their benefits, present some classification techniques, test some sample data, and then evaluate them against some selected criteria. Data mining became an essential asset to many disciplines ranging from military, business intelligence and marketing, science, engineering, and education.
