DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2016

Data Mining is a dominant tool for academic and educational field. Mining data in education atmosphere is called Educational Data Mining. Educational Data Mining is concerned with developing new methods to discover knowledge from educational/academic database and can be used for decision making in educational/academic systems. This work demonstrates an effective mining of students performance data in accordance with placement/recruitment process. The mining result predicts weather a student will be recruited or not based on academic and other performance during the entire course. To mine the students’ performance data, the data mining classification techniques such as – Decision tree- Random Tree and J48 classification models were built with 10 cross validation fold using WEKA. The constructed classification models are tested for predicting class label for new instances. The performance of the classification models used are tested and compared. Also the misclassification rates for the classification experiment are analyzed.
