An Information System (IS) is any combination of information technology and people’s activities using that technology to support operations, management, and decision-making. In a very broad sense, the term information system is frequently used to refer to the interaction between people, algorithmic processes, data and technology. Information systems are distinct from information technology in that an information system is typically seen as having an ICT component. Information systems help to control the performance of business processes.
An information system is a work system whose activities are devoted to processing (capturing, transmitting, storing, retrieving, manipulating and displaying) information. A work system is a system in which humans and/or machines perform work using resources to produce specific products and/or services for customers. Enrollment system is the must have system in a school. When a student is enrolling for a specific course the school requires all the necessary information of the enrolees. When the school retrieves the important information from the student, the encoder now should input the details of the student in the enrollment system.
In the enrollment system, the school can trace what are the standings of the students. The data of the student are inserted in the enrollment system it includes payment, subjects, number of units, section, subject rooms, etc. Lack of enrollment system in a school it can lead to chaos and troubles, the students will be confuse on what they should do and how they will do to be able to enrol. It is extremely useful in the school in the way of making the processes of enrolling much easy. In enrollment, Lobo International Institute Foundation Inc, a private institution on secondary school uses manual system of enrollment.
The proponents think that their current system for enrollment is quite time and effort consuming considering that they have 336 students at present. They are experiencing hard time in performing transactions involved in their enrollment like the assessment of the students, the payment for their tuition fees and other fees, registration and also in generating enrollment related reports. 1. 1 Statement of the Problem 1. 2. 1 General Problem How to design and implement a computerized enrollment system which will improve the current manual enrollment system of Lobo International Institute Foundation Inc? . 2. 2 Specific Problems How to create a module that will speed up the assessment process?

Teachers and Staff They can easily retrieve all the information about their students and monitor their standings. Students The enrollment process of every student will required less time unlike with the manual system. Proponents As the programmers of the system, the proponents will be able to develop their knowledge and skills in doing a system as preparation for their future job. Future Researchers They can use this system as reference for their studies. 1. 4 Scope and Limitations
The proposed system will be able to do the following functions: Maintenance This module allows the authorized personnel to add/save, edit/update, delete, search and view the student information and other related records. It includes the following maintenance: Student Maintenance This module keeps all the information about the students. User Maintenance Users will be given user-id and password to maintain security against unauthorized use. School Fees Maintenance All the transactions regarding the payments of tuition fees and other fees can be done in this module.
Schedule Maintenance This module will check schedule conflicts of every student. Subject Maintenance In this module, teachers can access information about the subjects they will handle for a certain class. Section Maintenance This module will manage the distribution of student for their respective sections. Year Level Maintenance This module will update the year level of students for every school year. Transactions This module performs the assessment, registration, cashiering, recording the grades of students, checking the outstanding balance of tuition fees and other fees.
Reports This module will generate enrollment master list, schedule report, report card, form 137 and payment collection. About This module gives information about the system and developer. Utilities This module will provide back-up and restore. It will be used in backing files stored in the database and recover it if in case corruption of data has occurred. Help This module will guide the users on how to execute the system. Limitation * Generation of Identification Card * Payroll * Computation of quizzes, project, recitation and major examination 1. 0 Methodology of the Study
Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a process used by a systems analyst to develop an information system, including requirements, validation, training, and user (stakeholder) ownership. Any SDLC should result in a high quality system that meets or exceeds customer expectations, reaches completion within time and cost estimates, works effectively and efficiently in the current and planned Information Technology infrastructure, and is inexpensive to maintain and cost-effective to enhance. Analysis Planning Design Maintenance
Implementation Planning It is a process of defining clear, discrete activities and the work needed to complete each activity within a single project. Its primary objectives are to identify the scope of the new system, ensure that the project is feasible and develop a schedule, resource plan and budget for the remainder of the project. Analysis The goal of system analysis is to determine where the problem is in an attempt to fix the system. This step involves breaking down the system in different pieces to analyze the situation, analyzing project goals, breaking own what needs to be created and attempting to engage users so that definite requirements can be defined. Requirement gathering is the most crucial aspect as many times communication gaps arise in this phase and this leads to validation errors and bugs in the software program. Design In systems design the design functions and operations are described in detail, including screen layouts, business rules, process diagrams and other documentation. The output of this stage will describe the new system as a collection of modules or subsystems.
The design stage takes as its initial input the requirements identified in the approved requirements document. For each requirement, a set of one or more design elements will be produced as a result of interviews, workshops, and/or prototype efforts. Design elements describe the desired software features in detail, and generally include functional hierarchy diagrams, screen layout diagrams, tables of business rules, business process diagrams, pseudocode, and a complete entity-relationship diagram with a full data dictionary.
These design elements are intended to describe the software in sufficient detail that skilled programmers may develop the software with minimal additional input design. Implementation Modular and subsystem programming code will be accomplished during this stage. Unit testing and module testing are done in this stage by the developers. This stage is intermingled with the next in that individual modules will need testing before integration to the main project. Maintenance The deployment of the system includes changes and enhancements before the decommissioning or sunset of the system.
Maintaining the system is an important aspect of SDLC. As key personnel change positions in the organization, new changes will be implemented, which will require system updates. 2. 0 Data Gathering Procedures and Output To become familiar with the current enrollment system of Lobo International Institute Foundation Inc, the proponents used data gathering procedures and fact finding techniques such as interview method, direct observation, school research and review of documents and records. Interview An appointment with Mrs.
Maricho Sjafruddin, OIC and Guidance Counselor, was made and the interview was done in their principal’s office. The following are the important points that the researchers gathered: 1. Lobo International Institute Foundation Inc for secondary school, which was founded in 2002 – 2003 was owned by Mrs. Elizabeth Z. Yoo M. D. and Rev. Paul K. Yoo. 2. At present, they are using manual system in enrollment. 3. They have 336 students at present and are distributed to 9 sections. The name of their sections for every year level came from the Bible. . They have 14 teachers and 7 staffs. 5. The tuition fee of the students is six thousand two hundred pesos (6,200. 00) and miscellaneous fee costs nine hundred pesos (900. 00). Review of Documents and Record The proponents reviewed and analyze the current documents and records available at Lobo International Institute Foundation Inc to understand how every transaction affect the current enrollment system. For instance, registration form which the students filled up the information during enrollment.
