Educational data mining comprises of various technologies and tasks which can applied on educational data to bring out useful information. In this research work, a data ware house is built to store the student data, two data mining tasks classification and association rule mining are applied over the student data set to analyse their performance in the examination. Decision tree algorithm is used to predict the course and program outcome. Association mining is used to analyze the outcome and understand technical capability of the students. The algorithms were found very accurate in predicting and analyzing the performance. Visual analytics is used in the framework to depict the analysis of the student's performance.
