All they have to do is mention the absent students and click the save button. The attendance stays linked with the exam report cards. The total number of working days, days in which the student was absent etc. get displayed in the report cards. In case of absence, the student’s parent receives an SMS on their Edisapp parent app. So that students think twice or thrice before bunking classes. 

Online Homework and Assignment Scheduling 

Online school management system makes homework and assignment scheduling a stress-free process. Teachers no longer need to write homework on the blackboard or the school diary and remind students of the submission date. Instead of that, teachers can create homework and assignments on the teacher app or teacher portal with the submission date, and it goes straight to the parent app as push notifications. 

Through the Edisapp parent mobile app every parent gets notifications of student homework and assignments. Thus, even though the child forgets the submission date, parents can keep track of their academic performance daily.

Online Exam Management 

Exams are an inevitable part of student education. Why? Because it ensures students are reaching the academic goals within the expected time. For a while ago, exam timetable scheduling and management were the only jobs of school management software, but with the arrival of Covid-19 pandemic, online examination platforms became the need and necessity of the hour. 

Even the school authorities, who were reluctant to incorporate technology into their curriculum and administration were running around seeking the aid of technology to conduct online classes and online exams. On account of the global lockdown, Edisapp introduced Exams33 portal for conducting online examinations. 

Online Report Generation

In traditional school systems, exam report card making is a tiresome job. Teachers have to manually write report cards for each student mentioning their respective name, subject marks, total marks obtained in the semester or term etc. Manual mark entry, as well as, manual calculations are prone to multiple errors. A system that automatically integrates mark entries directly into the report cards calculates the marks and gives final results reduces teacher workload in half. 

Edisapp report generation is an automated system enabling immediate report generation. All the reports generated get stored in the reports gallery, which never gets lost. Whenever a teacher or principal needs to access the report card, he/she does not have to go through the process from the beginning, But can easily find it in the reports gallery.

Online Fee Payment

In earlier days, the notice for a semester or term fees gets followed by a queue of parents and students in the school office to pay the fees, collect the printed or handwritten receipt etc. With an online school management system, the procedures got simplified. The long stretching queue in front of the office is out of the list. 

Now parents have the provisions to make digital payments through different modes. Credit cards, debit cards, net banking, UPI etc. are some of the methods commonly used for fee payments. Edisapp online fee payment module facilitates different payment gateways for parents to pay online and receive e-receipts immediately.

An online system reduces tasks to minimal and reduces the amount of paper used, thus saving the environment. With an online admission module, without any geographical constraints students from different parts can apply online. 

Once the admission procedure gets done, all student information and data gets added to the cloud database. It is accessible to the school staff any time of the day, the year, even after the student graduates from the school.
