Abstract: Test for English Majors-Band 4 (TEM-4) is a national Test for Chinese English majors in the end of their second year at university. This paper focuses on analysis and prediction of the TEM-4 performance of 77 English majors in a Chinese key university. A rich amount of data was collected including students’ demographics and family status, learning related achievement, motivation and learning journals they kept for a year with school’s permission and students’ willingness. The accuracy of three classification algorithms to predict students’ TEM-4 performance were compared and Naive Bayes Classifier is verified to gain the highest accuracy. On predicting whether the students’ TEM-4 scores might reach the excellent level, the accuracy of the model is above 90%. On predicting whether the students might pass the exam, the accuracy reaches 98%. One contributing finding of this study is that a richer set of data was collected, and we integrate the data. Another one is that students’ written learning journals have been verified in the improvement of the accuracy of the prediction model which hasn’t been explored in the previous researches about the test.
