Student Grade History System.
White, Stephen R.
This document describes the computerized procedures developed and utilized by Montgomery College (Maryland) to maintain records related to student academic progress. The new system was fully operable by fall 1972. Systems development included: (1) the conversion of past student records to a permanent grade history file; (2) the development of a new grade reporting system for active students; and (3) the establishment of an automated graduation checklist procedure (matching the student's completed and in-progress courses against curriculum requirements) in order to streamline advising and checkout functions. The objective of this system was to help the campus Records Office maintain accurate and complete student records on a campus enrolling over 10,000 students. The document describes the system design by providing flow charts of system procedures and presenting the data elements for each of the three system components, and by including sample report cards and other output forms. It also presents complete operating instructions by providing sample input forms, file maintenance instructions, and the processing schedule, and by describing error messages, correction procedures, and systems controls.
