Abstract

Student performance is very crucial to any educational institution. The neural network and genetic algorithms (GA) method were used to measure student performance in Thermodynamic at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University Malaysia Pahang (UMP). Randomly 65 mechanical engineering students with two different cohorts were picked to analysis their performance in these subjects with 5 variables which are Test 1, Test 2, Assignments, Final Examination and Quizzes. The analysis was done to measure the student performance in Thermodynamic I which final grade was used as the tools. The models show that Test 1 and Test 2 plays major role in the student final grade. Meanwhile assignments and quizzes play as a booster to their performances. Those who performance well in their testes, will maintain the momentum in their final. It’s proven that the early of the syllabus as fundamental knowledge must be strong, if the students want to do well in Thermodynamic I. The artificial intelligent model can be used for further investigate of the subject performance with include more predictor such as age, CGPA, gender and etc.
