Abstract: Data Mining plays an important role in the Business world and it helps the educational institution to predict and make decisions related to the students’ academic status. From a large volume of data in educational databases it is difficult to predict student performance. In India currently the existing systems lack in monitoring and analyzing the students’ performance. The main reason is that the existing system has insufficient capabilities for identification of performance of the student and it also not considered all factors that affect the achievements of a student’s in the context of India. Therefore, a systematical literature review on predicting student performance by the proposed system is a web-based which makes use of the mining techniques for the extraction of useful information. This work is digging insight into the state-based and event based approaches for predicting student performance. A Comparative analysis is conducted to suggest regression-based algorithms of state-based framework lack accuracy and correlation-based algorithms under the event-driven approach outperform classical regression algorithms. It is also concluded from pedagogical a point of view, higher engagement with social media leads to higher final grades.
