Evolutionary Computing for Educational Data Mining is a research field which with the applications of Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) to mine, analyze and modify educational data. This paper presents the most relevant studies conducted in this research area. The paper also describes different EAs used for implementing different data mining techniques. It goes on to list how these algorithms are utilized by different educational users to carry out different tasks. Finally, a new combination of EA, Educational User and data mining technique is suggested for implementation. As a part of that a personalized courseware construction technique is proposed and a sample courseware is constructed using the proposed technique. The details about the rule construction and the data mining process involved in the courseware construction techniques are also explained.
