What are different methods of school registration systems?
Paper-Based, Keyboard Entry, Optical Mark Recognition (OMR), Smart Cards, Magnetic ***** Cards and Biometric.
1 of 26
Advantages/Disadvantages of Paper-Based registration?
A - Can registrar students if computer networks are unavailable. D - Students can change marks. Mistakes are difficult to change.
2 of 26
Advantages/Disadvantages of Keyboard Entry registration?
A - Easier to produce attendance statistics. No need to return paper registers to an office. D - Teachers required to register each pupil.
3 of 26
Advantages/Disadvantages of OMR registration?
A -Initial cost of purchasing an OMR reader may provide more value for money. D - Some latecomers would not be registered if they arrive late.
4 of 26
Advantages/Disadvantages of Smart Card registration?
A - Hold more data. D - Reliance on the ICT system.
5 of 26
Advantages/Disadvantages of Magnetic ***** Card registration?
A - Affordable to purchase and manufacture. D - Pupils can 'swipe in' other not resent. Cards cab be forgotten/lost.
6 of 26
Advantages/Disadvantages of biometric registration?
A - Students do not have to remember things like cards. Impossible for other students to mark in non present students. D - Expensive. Privacy of database.
7 of 26
What are Management Information Systems (MIS)?
Used by managers and provides them with data needed to make decisions.
8 of 26
Advantages of MIS?
Teachers are able to focus on other more important things like planning lessons. Can be used for writing timetables and spotting truancy patterns.
9 of 26
Disadvantages of MIS?
Can be expensive. Staff would have to be trained. Needs to be adequate security and access control because of personal data.

What is Data Logging used for in schools?
Science experiments.
11 of 26
What is a logging period?
A set period of time where sensors automatically collect data readings.
12 of 26
What is the time between each data reading called?
Logging Interval.
13 of 26
Types of Sensors?
Temperature, Light, PIR, Pressure and Sound.
14 of 26
What can a temperature sensor be used for in science experiments?
For logging how long it takes a liquid to cool.
15 of 26
What can a light sensor be used for in science experiments?
For measuring how different light levels affects plant growth.
16 of 26
What can a PIR sensor be used for in science experiments?
Passive infra-red to detect movement (also used in security systems).
17 of 26
What can a pressure sensor be used for in science experiments?
Measures something using (used in security systems).
18 of 26
What can a sound sensor be used for in science experiments?
Measures the volume that is being made.
19 of 26
Advantages of data logging?
More accurate because people can't make mistakes like forget tot take ratings. Readings can be taken automatically at any time.
20 of 26
Disadvantages of data logging?
Can be expensive. Anger that equipment will go wrong.
21 of 26
What can a temperature sensor be used for in Weather Forecasting Systems?
For logging temperatures outside.
22 of 26
What can a wind sensor be used for in Weather Forecasting Systems?
For measuring wind forces.
23 of 26
What can a pressure sensor be used for in Weather Forecasting Systems?
For measuring atmospheric conditions.
24 of 26
What can a humidity sensor be used for in Weather Forecasting Systems?
Measures moisture in the atmosphere.
25 of 26
What can a rain sensor be used for in Weather Forecasting Systems?
For measuring rainfall.
