In recent years, the analysis and evaluation of students" performance and retaining the standard of education is a very important problem in all the educational institutions. The most important goal of the paper is to analyze and evaluate the school students" performance by applying data mining classification algorithms in weka tool. The data mining tool has been generally accepted as a decision making tool to facilitate better resource utilization in terms of students" performance. The various
more » ... classification algorithms could be specifically mentioned as J48, Random Forest, Multilayer Perceptron, IB1 and Decision Table are used. The results of such classification model deals with accuracy level, confusion matrices and also the execution time. Therefore conclusion could be reached that the Random Forest performance is better than that of different algorithms.
