Educational Data Mining - a subset of educational research. Educational researchers have always collected data (classroom observation) or mined data (retention rates, final marks, mid term marks etc.). The ability to produce and collect large quantities of data is a recent development. As well, large quantities of raw data are/may being generated and recorded without purpose and are available for synthesis and refinement at a later date.
