Learning analytics is useful technology in examining students’ learning performance, skill and attitude in learning environment. It also takes to the next level i.e. rather than focusing on the past issues, it helps to predict learners’ future success. The key accountability of most of the education systems is student success. It may be measured as graduating from college, qualifying for a job or further education, acquiring a specified set of skills, or achieving needed credentials. Outcome Based Education is a learnercentered approach that focuses on measuring students` attainment and achievement based on activities and assessments. By leveraging predictive analytics in OBE, faculty members and mentors can identify the nonattainment of the graduate outcomes of a student and intervene earlier with higher impact. Personalized learning style which focuses on the needs of each student and a practice. The proposed approach assists faculty to measure the attainment status of a student with respect to OBE assessment and also predicts the academic performance of students towards Outcome Based Education perspective.
