1 CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Information System refers to the interaction of people, data, process and technology. It is used by the society or by an organization for the support in their operations, management and decision-making to make transaction more simple and easy. The activities of an IS are devoted to provide data and information to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of different operation of a business in an organization. One classification of an Information System is Transaction Process System that handles or records day to day transaction of a business.
Example of this is an Enrollment System, a computer generated process which can support the operation and management of a school. This is designed for recording, verifying and processing student’s information who registers on a particular institution. Despite of helpful services provided by an enrollment system, there are still many institutions that use manual procedures like Munting Ilog National High School Silang West Annex. In their school, they manually do the encoding of students information and listing and checking of students’ requirements. This esulted in lot of difficulties that they encounter in handling their transactions leading to more serious problems like unreliable records of the students and data losses. The manual procedure also takes so much time and effort thus bringing lots of wasted time and more workload for the personnel in charge and for the students enrolling. To address the above problems, the developers developed a computerized enrollment system. This system is capable of providing a 2 fast-paced enrollment processes resulting to a better enrollment transaction not only for the part of staff but also for the students.
It minimized if not completely remove all the drawbacks of the manual enrollment to provide a better service and a high quality process outcome. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY GENERAL OBJECTIVE The general objective of the study is to develop the Munting Ilog National High School Silang West Annex Enrollment System. SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE This study specifically aims to: 1. To design a system that will replace the manual enrollment resulting to speed up transaction, reliable and accurate students’ information, and fast access to students’ record. 2. To develop a systematic and user-friendly environment that will minimize uman error and avoid data losses. 3. To evaluate performance of the proposed system. 3 SCOPE AND LIMITATIONS The system is an information system exclusively designed for Munting Ilog National High School Silang West Annex. The Munting Ilog National High School Silang West Annex Enrollment System is proficient of gathering students’ and teachers’ information and summarizing it to produce accurate and reliable records. It is capable of generating automatically the section of the students. It also allows the teachers to view their information and print their updated schedules.
This system is implemented on LAN to provide a faster service. It has three direct users with different level of access including of one (1) admin, three registrars (3) and all the teachers in the said school. All these users are allowed to update their accounts providing that their new user name is unique and available. In case they forgot their password they can still access the system by answering the security questions that they provide while creating their account. The system was developed using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate as the front end which serves as the User’s Interface and MySQL (Structured Query
Language) as the back end which handles the database. ODBCAD 32 was used to connect the system to its back end (MySQL). It was created for about 3 months with the incorporation of these application software committed to ensure the efficient and fast processing of records. This system does not automatically generate schedules for the students. The admin is in charge in encoding manually the schedules of each section before the enrollment starts. Another drawback of the system is, if there are instances that a user forgot his/her username, they cannot access their account anymore.
There is no security questions provided for unrecognizable username so what they need to do is to create a new account. The system is a network based application but does not work online. In case of power failure, it is not capable of saving any unsaved data or transaction. Only the current unsaved transaction will not be saved, all the other entries will remain in the database. 4 OPERATIONAL DEFINITION OF TERMS Munting Ilog National High School Silang West Annex Enrollment System.

The process for the system analysis contains the requirement analysis and requirement definition. For the design and development of the system, it includes context flow diagram and system development life cycle. Through these processes, all the system requirements and objectives were met. For the evaluation, the user used alpha-beta testing to measure the system performance.
It served as the gathering tool for feedbacks, comments and suggestions through the use of evaluation forms. The system was improved in presence of some errors and the output and module design was tested. 8 CHAPTER II RESEARCH METHODOLOGY In this chapter, all the processes that the developers underwent to achieve the objective of the study is shown. This includes the project design, project development, operational and testing procedure, and evaluation of the study. PROJECT DESIGN To be able to come up with an organized project, there should be a design on how the project should function. This design served as the developer’s guide n attaining the project objectives. Figure 2. System Context Flow Diagrams Registra tion Form 9 Figure 2, illustrates that Admin, being the administrator should log in first his password and username. If he is a valid user, he has all the privileged to use all the features of the system such as encoding students’ and teachers’ information and updating it. The system will generate this information thus returning report to the admin. This report comprises the students section and schedules producing the registration form which will be given to them. The registrars should have a valid account to use the system.
If they are authorized user, they can now encode information of the enrollees and search and update students’ records if necessary. The system would generate reports containing students’ information and schedule producing their registration form. In part of the teachers, they should also log in first an authorized account. If they are valid user, they can access minimal features of the system. This includes viewing their profile and schedule of their advisory class. The system will return reports that consist of their schedules which can be printed. PROJECT DEVELOPMENT
The developers used the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) for the development of Munting Ilog National High School West Annex Enrollment System. The diagram shown below illustrates the different phases of SDLC model that show the sequence of the activities that the developers needed to undergo for the project development. 10 Analysis and Planning Phase. In this stage, the system was defined based from the interviews, researches, investigations and business requirements of the client. All the needed informations and materials for the development of the ystem were collected and the time bound was set. Design Phase. During this stage, layouts and diagrams were created based from the gathered materials and informations, considering also the business rules and specifications given by the client. The actual interface of the system and the database that supported it were also designed. Figure 3. System Development Life Cycle 11 12 Figure 4 shows the Data Flow Diagram for Admin Scenario. The admin should first input a username and password. If it is a valid account, he has now the privilege to access all the features of the system.
First, he could encode schedule for a section to be stored in the sec_sched. Generating and updating recorded schedules are also obtainable. These schedules could be printed and the report will be given to the admin. Second, the admin could create section that would be stored in the section table. Afterwards, he can add subjects to this section to be stored in subject table. Generating section is also available. Viewing section would allow the admin to view all the students’ and their profile within that selected section. Tables that would be source of data that allow this process were he student table for student information, and section table for the information of the section. Third, the admin could encode teachers’ information to be stored in teacher table. This would produce a teachers’ record that could be viewed, updated and printed together with their schedules. Sec_sched for teachers’ schedule and teacher table for their information would be the source of data. The printed schedule would be given to teachers and the schedule report to the admin Fourth, encoding students’ information could also be done by the admin.
These recorded students’ records would store in the student table. Viewing, updating and printing students’ registration forms that contained their schedule and some information from the sec_sched and student tables are allowed. These registration forms would be given to the students and a report would be given to the admin. Lastly, the admin is allowed to update his password and username. The updated username and password would be saved in the password table and report will be issued upon updating the account. 13 14 Figure 5 shows how data were processed in the system for the registrar cenario. The registrar should log-in first his/her username and password in order to access the system. After the verification, he/she could the encode enrollees’ information to be stored in the student table. The registrar could also search and update student’s record. Registration form containing the student’s information and its schedule will be printed and given to the enrolled student. Report will be issued to the registrar after the registration form was printed. On the other hand, the registrar can also update his/her account providing his/her username and password.
The updated username and password would be saved in the password table and report will be issued upon updating the account. 15 16 Figure 6 shows the data flow diagram for the Teachers Scenario. To be able to use the system, the teacher should log in first his username and password. If he is a valid user, he can now successfully access the system. He can view the schedule of his advisory class that would be given by the sec_sched table. He could also view his profile and schedule from the teacher and sec_sched tables by encoding his identification. A teacher report could be rinted comprising some of his information and schedule which would be given to him. Another capability of teacher’s account is that, the teacher is allowed to view all the students and their profiles of a particular section providing that he is the registered adviser of them. Updating username and password is also allowed within this account. The updated username and password would be saved in the password table and report will be issued upon updating the account. 17 DATABASE DESIGN Table 1. stud_personal Table Field Name Data Type Description std_code VARCHAR Student code std_type VARCHAR Student type std_level VARCHAR Student level td_school_year VARCHAR Student school year grade VARCHAR Grade std_firstname VARCHAR Student first name std_middlename VARCHAR Student middle name std_lastname VARCHAR Student last name std_address VARCHAR Student address std_dob VARCHAR Student date of birth std_pob VARCHAR Student place of birth std_age VARCHAR Student age std_gender VARCHAR Student gender std_citizenship VARCHAR Student citizenship std_religion VARCHAR Student religion std_contact VARCHAR Student contact number Table 2. stud_family Table Field Name Data Type Description std_father VARCHAR Student father std_father_occ VARCHAR Student father’s occupation td_mother VARCHAR Student mother std_mother_occ VARCHAR Student mother’s occupation std_guardian VARCHAR Student guardian Table1, the Student’s Personal Information Table, is used for storing the personal information of the student. 18 std_guardian_occ VARCHAR Student guardian’s occupation std_guardian_add VARCHAR Student guardian’s address std_guardian_relation VARCHAR Student guardian’s relation std_guardian_contact VARCHAR Student guardian’s contact number Field Name Data Type Description std_elem VARCHAR Student elementary school std_elem_add VARCHAR Student elementary school address std_elem_year VARCHAR Student elementary school year td_hs VARCHAR Student high school std_hs_add VARCHAR Student high school address std_hs_year VARCHAR Student high school year std_lsa VARCHAR Student last school attended std_lsa_add VARCHAR Student last school attended address std_lsa_year VARCHAR Student last school attended year Field Name Data Type Description std_req_nso VARCHAR Student nso requirement std_req_tor VARCHAR Student tor requirement std_req_form138 VARCHAR Student form138 requirement std_picture VARCHAR Student picture std_section VARCHAR Student section std_nonPK VARCHAR Student non Primary Key section_flag VARCHAR Section flag section_flag2 VARCHAR Section flag2 Table 4. tores the requirement’s information of the enrollee and stores the flag that holds the number of users of the system.
