A student information system (SIS) is
software application for education establishments to manage student data. Also
known as student information management system (SIMS), student records system (SRS),
student management system (SMS), campus management system (CMS) or school
management system (SMS). The SIS is
equivalent to an Enterprise Resource Planning or ERP system for a cooperate customer.
As such, many of the issue with ERP system selection Methodology,
implementation, and operation of an ERP system apply too. Student information
system (SIS) is also a computer- based application software designed to
introduced a conducive and structured information exchange environment for
integrating students, parent, teachers and administration of a school or
college. Some of the other software packages available for this purpose include
student management system (SMS), student information management system (SIMS)
and student record system (SRS). These software system enable educational
institutions to surprise student- related activities such as Keeping records of
tests or examination conducted, attendance, appraisal on performance including
details of mark scored, particular of everyday school attendance, and all other
institution- related activities? In short, they provide a complete student
records system. They are designed with diverse application potential ranging
from simple management of students? Records at school to manage of all student-
related functions as well as administrative functions of a university or a
chain of educational establishments.
1.1 Theoretical Background
Today, it is believed that the
application of computer technology in any activity would go along way in making
activity much easer. To the research this statement remains theory until proven
otherwise by the implementation of computerized student’s information tracking
system. It is also believed that the benefits and advantages of using computer
is more significant than that of the manual methods. This also wants to be
proven beyond doubt by the researcher through the implementation of the system.
1.2 Statements of the Problems
In much higher learning school in the
country, they do have data bank that contain all information of every students
who are learning in the school. In the case of conflict that do happen in many
schools, for the management to fetch out the culprit cause the management a lot of time and resources. Through the
implement at of the new system, it seeks to provide a reliable storage that
will contain every information that concern both students and their guardian
incase of investigation. It would also solve the problem of mass absence from
the class during lecture by keeping the records of students who are in the
class day by day.
1.3 Aim and Objective(s) of the
The project is aimed at
developing student information tracking
system with improved performance over that of the current to ensure that the
problem of the current system are properly analyzed and a solution to such
problems incorporated in the new system.
Student information system must meet
the following objectives:
Ø Enable self-service for students to
perform basic administration functions and tasks in a “one – stop” service and
Ø Integrate data sources and process
them through a single function that
supports one-time entry of student data.
Ø Support the retention and recruitment of
students and encourage a strong and
positive relationship with the university, alumni, donors, and other
Ø Integrate and support new learning
and teaching opportunities and technologies for students and faculty.
1.4 Significant of the Study
The use of student information system
has the significance effect and this can be enumerated as follows:
v To help the school to know the
pedigree of all the student admitted into the school.
v To create a storage of large volume
of data on school records.
v To assist the school management for
easily identification of students.
v To prevents students to involve
themselves any havoc happening in the school because of the fear tracking them.
1.5 Scope of the Study
This project is aimed at how the
institute can improve the efficiency of the services. Student information
tracking system is one the application involves almost all the features of the
information system? The futures implementation will be online help for users to
1.6 Organization of the Research
This project is divided into five
chapter one gives a generation introduction, theoretical background, statement
of the problem, aim and objective (s) of the study, significance of the study,
scope of the study, organization of the research and definition of the terms.
Chapter two handles introduction,
literature review highlighting basic concepts.
Chapter three is deals with system
design that handles introduction, research methodology, input/output format,
Chapter four is the system implementation
and evaluation phases that handle system design flowchart, choice of
programming language, analysis of the modules and implementation.
Chapter five handles introduction,
summary, conclusion and recommendation of the research.
