In this paper we propose the use of a special type of association rules mining for discovering interesting relationships from the students’ test data collected in our case with Moodle learning management system (LMS). Particularly, we apply Class Association Rule (CAR) mining to different data matrices such as the score-matrix, the relationship-matrix and the knowledge-matrix. These matrices are constructed based on the data relate to students’ performance in the test and on the domain knowledge provided by the instructor. We describe how to obtain these matrices and then we have applied a CAR mining algorithm.
