Identifying Hidden Patterns in Students‟ Feedback through Cluster Analysis

Anwar Muhammad Abaidullah, Naseer Ahmed, and Edriss Ali
Abstract—The analysis and assessment of the students’ feedback in improving the educational environment as well as enhancing students' learning experience is one of the critical issues for the higher education community. The conventional methods of analysis and assessment are not sufficient to explore the hidden information from the student feedback data repositories. In this paper we present the analysis of students’ feedback data using k-means clustering algorithm for effective decision making by educational community responsible for monitoring and reviewing the effectiveness of educational programs and for improving the quality of teaching and learning experience for their students.

Index Terms—Centroid, data mining, homogeneous groups, k-means.
