The thesis titled "Educational Data Mining of Curriculum and Student Data" looks at some of the important factors that are contributing to the growing interest and research in the Educational Data Mining domain such as scope of online education, availability of huge repositories of relevant data and need to identify potentials and address pitfalls. It is an attempt at analyzing a publicly available data set to understand the process of data mining while trying to discover the potential factors related to curriculum and student data that might have an impact on the success or failure of a student in a particular course. Despite several limitations, it was successful in identifying "Activity-Grade" predictors that may have considerable impact on a student's grade and may be able to identify patterns in student learning behavior as an indicator of student success. It identified predictors like student posts in course forums, number of active days, assignments completed, discipline of study, etc. that impact and determine a student's success in terms of grade. Different approaches such feature selection, clustering, regression modeling and decision tree modeling were used to identify and validate these factors along with predicting the target grade of the students. It is hoped that this research may lay the foundation for future research into development of course recommender systems based on student and curriculum data which might benefit students looking to pursue online courses.

This book emphasizes that learning efficiency of the learners can be increased by providing personalized course materials and guiding them to attune with suitable learning paths based on their characteristics such as learning style, knowledge level, emotion, motivation, self-efficacy and many more learning ability factors in e-learning system. Learning is a continuous process since human evolution. In fact, it is related to life and innovations. The basic objective of learning to grow, aspire and develop ease of life remains the same despite changes in the learning methodologies. Introduction of computers empowered us to attain new zenith in knowledge domain, developed pragmatic approach to solve life’s problem and helped us to decipher different hidden patterns of data to get new ideas. Of late, computers are predominantly used in education. Its process has been changed from offline to online in view of enhancing the ease of learning. With the advent of information technology, e-learning has taken centre stage in educational domain. In e-learning context, developing adaptive e-learning system is buzzword among contemporary research scholars in the area of Educational Data Mining (EDM). Enabling personalized systems is meant for improvement in learning experience for learners as per their choices made or auto-detected needs. It helps in enhancing their performance in terms of knowledge, skills, aptitudes and preferences. It also enables speeding up the learning process qualitatively and quantitatively. These objectives are met only by the Personalized Adaptive E-learning Systems in this regard. Many noble frameworks were conceptualized, designed and developed to infer learning style preferences, and accordingly, learning materials were delivered adaptively to the learners. Designing frameworks help to measure learners’ preferences minutely and provide adaptive learning materials to them in a way most appropriately.

Traditional data mining techniques have been extensively applied to find interesting patterns, build descriptive and predictive models from large volumes of data accumulated through the use of different information systems. The results of data mining can be used for getting a better understanding of the underlying educational processes, for generating recommendations and advice to students, for improving management of learning objects, etc. However, most of the traditional data mining techniques focus on data dependencies or simple patterns and do not provide a visual representation of the complete educational (assessment) process ready to be analyzed. To allow for these types of analysis (in which the process plays the central role), a new line of data-mining research, called "process mining", has been initiated. Process mining focuses on the development of a set of intelligent tools and techniques aimed at extracting process-related knowledge from event logs recorded by an information system. In this paper we demonstrate the applicability of process mining, and the ProM framework in particular, to educational data mining context. We analyze assessment data from recently organized online multiple choice tests and demonstrate the use of process discovery, conformance checking and performance analysis techniques.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2014 in the subject Computer Science - General, , course: DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY, language: English, abstract: The primary objective of this research is to develop a process to accurately predict useful data from the huge amount of available data using data mining techniques. Data Mining is the process of finding treads, patterns and correlations between fields in large RDBMS. It permits users to analyse and study data from multiple dimensions and approaches, classify it, and summarize identified data relationships. Our focus in this thesis is to use education data mining procedures to understand higher education system data better which can help in improving efficiency and effectiveness of education. In order to achieve a decisional database, many steps need to be taken which are explained in this thesis. This work investigates the efficiency, scalability, maintenance and interoperability of data mining techniques. In this research work, data-results obtained through different data mining techniques have been compiled and analysed using variety of business intelligence tools to predict useful data. An effort has also been made to identify ways to implement this useful data efficiently in daily decision process in the field of higher education in India. Mining in educational environment is called Educational Data Mining. Han and Kamber describes data mining software that allow the users to analyze data from different dimensions, categorize it and Summarize the relationships which are identified during the mining process. New methods can be used to discover knowledge from educational databases. Every data has a lot of hidden information. The processing method of data decides what type of information data produce. In India education sector has a lot of data that can produce valuable information. This information can be used to increase the quality of education. But educational institution does not use any knowledge discovery process approach on these data. Information and communication technology puts its leg into the education sector to capture and compile low cost information. Now a day a new research community, educational data mining (EDM), is growing which is intersection of data mining and pedagogy. First chapter of the thesis elaborates the knowledge data discovery process, data mining concept, history and application of data mining in various industries.
