Educational institutions attempt to collect feedback from students to study their sentiment towards courses and facilitates provided by the institution to improve the college environment. In present scenario, grading technique is used for feedback. This grading technique does not reveal the true sentiment of students, but the textual feedback provides a chance to the students to highlight certain aspects. In this paper, a method has been proposed for sentimental analysis of student feedback using machine learning algorithms such as Support Vector Machine, Multinomial Naïve Bayes Classifier, and Random Forest. A comparative analysis is also conducted between these machine learning techniques. The experimental results suggest that Multinomial Naïve Bayes Classifier is more accurate than other methods.
