Abstract: Change prediction is very essential for producing good quality software. It leads to saving of lots of resources in terms of money, manpower and time. Predicting the classes during early phases can be done with the help of model construction using machine learning techniques. Every technique requires approximately equal distribution of classes (balanced data) for an efficient prediction. In this study, we have used a sampling approach to balance the data. We observed the improvement in accuracy after the models are trained on the balanced data. To further improve the accuracy of the models, the default parameters of the sampling approach have been adjusted /tuned. The results show the improvement in accuracy after sampling and parameter tuning.
