Student Record Management System is a software helpful for students as well as department staff. The Student Record Management System (SRMS) is a web-based application designed to manage student records efficiently. Using the Django framework, SRMS includes features such as registration, enrolments, grading, photos, remarks, and record tracking The system focuses on student-related data, including their CGPA, address, phone number, fees, and other details. Administrators and faculty can access this information quickly and efficiently, reducing the time and effort required to manage student records. In addition to the SRMS, the project also includes a department website. The website is designed to provide information about the department, its facilities, and its programs. It includes a news section, an events section, a gallery section, and resources for students such as course materials and other important data. The website is also integrated with the SRMS, allowing students to access their personal records, view their grades and communicate with faculty and administrators. The website\'s responsive design enables students to access the website from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Overall, the SRMS and the department website provide a comprehensive solution for managing student records and improving the academic experience for students. The project\'s use of Django framework and responsive design make it a scalable and reliable solution for any educational institution. Moreover, the website\'s integration with the SRMS allows for a seamless user experience, reducing the time and effort required for administrative tasks. This can free up resources and enable faculty and administrators to focus on more strategic initiatives to enhance the quality of education and support for students.
The management of student records is a determining factor of any educational institution. It involves various activities such as student registration, course enrolment, grading, attendance tracking, and report generation. This project is end to end web app which is very easy to understand and use. The project follows MVT structure. The current manual process of managing student records is time-consuming, labour-intensive, and prone to errors, which can negatively impact the quality of education and administrative efficiency. To address this issue, we have designed a Student Record Management System (SRMS), a web-based application that automates the process of managing student records. The SRMS project aims to streamline the various activities related to student record management, making it more efficient and error-free. The SRMS system is designed to be easy to use, with an intuitive interface that enables administrators and faculty to access and update student records quickly and efficiently.
It includes various modules that help manage student records, such as registration, enrolments, grading, attendance tracking, and report generation. The SRMS project also includes a department website that serves as a communication platform for students, faculty, and administrators. It provides easy access to important information about the department, its programs, and events, improving engagement and satisfaction with the academic experience. The SRMS system is developed using the latest technology, including the Django framework, to ensure scalability and reliability. It is also designed to be highly secure, with role-based access controls that limit access to sensitive information, enhancing the security and privacy of student data.
The purpose of this project is to provide educational institutions with a reliable and efficient system to manage student records. It aims to improve the quality of education and administrative efficiency by reducing the time and effort required to manage student records manually. The integration of the SRMS with the department website makes it a seamless solution for managing student records and improving the academic experience.
II. LITERATURE REVIEW
Several studies have been conducted in the past that highlight the importance of an efficient student record management system in educational institutions.
