Data Mining Application for Determining Student’s Academic Performance (A Case Study of Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin)

Subscribe to access this work and thousands more

ABSTRACT

The project mainly focused on developing an application for information extract or retrieval from pool of data (i.e. a large database) to form basis for decision making. Information extracted from the database in the course of data mining process can be presented in graphical format in form of graphs patterns, histogram, etc. and also in text format. The reason for suggesting the project is the need for employing computer software medium for sanitizing academic standard through computer based decision making. Data mining package can present clear reasons and factor that affects students’ performance and hence allow administrators to derive strategic means of tackling such issues. The package will be developed in a .net integrated development environment (.net IDE). The package IDE is chosen following the fact that extracted information needs to be presented in an enhanced pictorial/graphical format and easy communication with the database for program flexibility in windows platform.
