In this paper the authors combine the data mining with natural language processing to extract the nuggets of knowledge from massive volume of student feedback dataset on faculty performance. The main objective is to compare two renowned association rule mining and sequential pattern mining algorithms namely apriori and Generalized Sequential Pattern (GSP) mining in the context of extracting frequent features and opinion words. Student feedback data crawled, pre-process and tagged, then convert in tri-model data files. Both algorithms are applied on prepared data through WEKA 3.7.10 (a machine learning tool) to extract the rules.
