Languages of publication
Providing high quality education is a major concern for higher educational institutions. The quality of education in higher institutions can be assessed by the teaching and learning process. The quality of the teaching learning process depends on the performance of instructor as well as performance of students involved. Analysis and prediction of student performance is key step to identify the poor academic performance. On the basis of prediction, the corrective actions must be taken to improve performance of students and enhance the quality of education system. In this study we surveyed the techniques commonly used to predict the performance of students and also analysed the factors affecting the student academic performance.
