8. Setting Up a Mini SIS

Chapter 8. Setting Up a Mini SIS

It is important for an educational program to maintain a wide variety of data related to each of the students matriculating through the program. This data can range from personal contact information to information about a student's performance in classes. The data, in the case of many schools, might include a student's grade point average, his or her test scores, as well as contact information for parents or guardians and may even include things such as a student's blood type and information about allergies. A Student Information System (SIS) is a computer-based system that organizes all of this data, and more, and makes it easy to access for administrators and teachers. Moodle is not designed specifically to function as an SIS but as much of the data that is often included in an SIS already exists in the Moodle database, it's not that difficult to bend Moodle to meet our needs.
