Abstract: A framework how to use data mining of central exam data for the prediction of student success in bachelor degree courses is presented. For the prediction a supervised learning approach is used based on successful and unsuccessful student biographies. We develop a traffic light rating system and present results for two different kinds of bachelor degree courses; one in economics and one in engineering. We discuss applications for students and student counseling institutions as well as the limitations dealing with information privacy aspects, especially under the conditions regarding data mining in Germany.
