Prediction of Success or Fail of Students on Different Educational Majors at the End of the High School with Artificial Neural Networks Methods

Sayyed Majid Mazinani and Sayyede Azam Abolghasempur
Abstract— The main objective of departments of education is providing quality education for students. One of the methods to achieve a high level of quality in education system is knowledge discovery for prediction of students' enrollment in a specific field. This knowledge is hidden in educational and motivational data. It is extractable by data mining techniques. The present article is designed to justify the capabilities of data mining methods in education by presenting a data mining method. In this research classification is used for evaluating the students' performance. There are many methods for predicting students' Performance in different fields. Here artificial neural (ANN) is used. With this method we extract the knowledge which describes the students' performance in the final exams. This method is suitable for identifying appropriate field for the students and they will succeed in the field.

Index Terms— Activation function, artificial neural networks, data mining training, multilayer perceptron networks.
