So such institutions keep large database with them to evaluate student’s performance in future. Database may contains information such as students personnel information, their secured marks for every subjects and their internal scores based on their academic performance etc. “Educational Data Mining For Evaluating Students Performance” research paper makes use of different kinds of data such as attendance details, previous semester marks, seminar performance etc to evaluate student’s academic performance. Classification methods are used here to evaluate the student’s performance. Here uses data mining algorithm to calculate performance metrics. In this paper using ID3 decision tree algorithm for predicting the student performance.

Keywords: Datamining, ID3 Algorithm, Gain Ratio.
