Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS,volume 709)


The decision making process in any field related to human behavior is an integral part of complex environment. Education has become a major concern of the development process in every field. The competent decision making to plan, execute and evaluate policies in this field became a necessity of this field which may be achieved by applying data mining techniques to educational environment. EDM uses many techniques such as decision trees, neural networks, k-nearest neighbor, naive bays, support vector machines and many others. The principal purpose of the study is identifying how each of these traditional processes can be improved through data mining techniques. And also to analyze the student behavior for future benefit by applying Data mining technique and using this valuable information for Decision Support to Prognostication of Academic Intervention for Higher Education using Data Mining Techniques. The study has suggested models and algorithms for every educational sphere we found while analyzing Education database. Data modeling processes is our main outcome, and enhanced processes achieved through data mining have been presented as research outcome. The techniques appropriate in achieving this enhanced processes has also been presented as modeling processes for finding the behavioral aspects and to effectively implement the organizational policies.
