Abstract : Data mining plays an important role in the business world and it helps to the educational institution to predict and make decisions related to the students' academic status. With a higher education, now a days dropping out of students' has been increasing, it affects not only the students' career but also on the reputation of the institute. The existing system is a system which maintains the student information in the form of numerical values and it just stores and retrieve the information what it contains. So the system has no intelligence to analyze the data. The proposed system is a web based application which makes use of the Naive Bayesian mining technique for the extraction of useful information. The experiment is conducted on 700 students' with 19 attributes in Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Mysuru. Result proves that Naive Bayesian algorithm provides more accuracy over other methods like Regression, Decision Tree, Neural networks etc., for comparison and prediction. The system aims at increasing the success graph of students using Naive Bayesian and the system which maintains all student admission details, course details, subject details, student marks details, attendance details, etc. It takes student's academic history as input and gives students' upcoming performances on the basis of semester. © 2016 IEEE.
