Student Record Automating Using Desktop Computer Technologies.
Almerico, Gina M.; Baker, Russell K.; Matassini, Norma
Teacher education programs nationwide are required by state and federal governments to maintain comprehensive student records of all current and graduated students in their programs. A private, mid-sized university established a faculty team to analyze record-keeping procedures to comply with these government requirements. The team's mandate was to establish an effective and efficient procedure for obtaining and handling student records. The lack of uniform standards in the record-keeping process produced inconsistent and incomplete data. The then current data-keeping procedure was paper-based and inefficient. A database management system based on Microsoft Access was developed and implemented to capture, store, and organize student data. Using the system, the education program developed and maintained electronic student files that provide the data needed for required reports. Additionally, the database management system provides several other benefits to the university's education department. (Author/SM)
