Abstract

In recent years, the educational issues have attracted more and more researchers\u2019 and teachers\u2019 attention. On the other hand, the development of data mining technology, provides a new method to extract the useful information from the complex educational data. In order to increase the chance of students to be awarded in discipline competition, it is better to select the proper students to take part in the proper discipline competition. Therefore, in this study, we collect the information of 164 undergraduate students as a case study. All students majored in Software Engineering in Zhejiang University of Finance and Economics. The Apriori algorithm with group strategy is used to find the relationship between the students\u2019 courses scores and competition awards. According to the results of association rule mining, we find that the students with higher scores of C# Development, Object-Oriented, Internet Web Design, Data Structure(C#), and Basic Programming will have a higher probability to be awarded in the competition.
