Performance in academic courses is among the most important factors affecting the quality of higher education available to students. In this paper, we use data mining techniques, specifically classification, to analyze students’ grades in different evaluative assignments for a course on data structures. For this purpose, we compare three different classifiers using real data from King Saud University to predict students’ performances. We apply classification techniques to both numerical and… CONTINUE READING
