Student Grade Prediction Using C4.5 Decision Tree
We here come up with a system where student final grade is predicted based on the marks he had scored during his previous course and years. In order to predict the grade of the student we need some data to analyze and to predict the grade. So we will input student basic information and their previous academic information into the system which will be used to predict the grade of the student. We here used an effective data mining algorithm to predict the result. We used C4.5 decision tree algorithm to predict the grade of the student.C4.5 is a program for inducing classification rules in the form of decision trees from a set of given examples. C4.5 is a software extension of the basic ID3 algorithm designed by Quinlan. Admin and user will use the system. Here user will be the student. Admin and user will use their credentials to access the system. Admin can add student details with basic information. Admin must add academic details of the student. Like his SSC, HSC, Graduation marks. User can view the grade and here system will generate a report where he will get grade prediction using C4.5 algorithm. This system can be used in schools, colleges and other educational institutes.
