A Management Information System or MIS is a central repository that essentially gathers, organizes and stores data, processes and analyses it, and generates various reports from it. This data is easily searchable and can be retrieved using a few keywords at any given time.

In the field of education, MIS has specific roles in the growth of an educational institution. A system that monitors and manages the distribution and allocation of educational resources in the programs offered by an institute is called Educational Management Information System (EMIS). It helps to plan, manage and strategize to implement work processes to execute the education system efficiently.

The Educational Management Information System was initially used to make school administration more efficient. EMIS provides useful information for effective planning, policy development and evaluation to administrators and teachers. However, these days education institutions intend to align academic processes and produce better learning outcomes too by implementing comprehensive management solutions.

Features of Education Management Information System:

Better Communication with Parents

An Education Management Information System can simplify the communication between parents and teachers, and school administrators. It can be easily done with the help of instant messaging and mass communication. With the use of EMIS, parents can be informed about important events and regularly updated about their child’s academic progress.

Better Communication with Students

With the help of the Education Management Information System, students can receive individual messages or group messages. It can be helpful when there is an important announcement to be made on short notice regarding class rescheduling or an upcoming deadline.

Management of Fee Collections

Fee collection can be made easy with the help of the Educational Management Information System, as it generates automatic alerts to inform school administrators and account managers of missed or late payments. An easier way for fee collections is implementing a semi-automated payment management system.

Enquiries and Admissions Management

With the help of the Education Management Information System, the most commonly asked questions and enquiries regarding admissions can be easily answered using automated solutions. This can free up a lot of time and resources which can be allocated elsewhere. Moreover, the initial admission process can be fully automated using EMIS and help track key data on student applications.

Examination Management

An Education Management Information System can be useful for planning, scheduling, and informing important information about exams by using scheduling and communication tools. It can also be used to publish exam results that can be accessed by the students and teachers. Further detailed reports can be created using this data, and based on this, student performance can be tracked.

Student Information Dashboard

This feature helps teachers and parents to access essential information on students’ academic activities quickly and easily. This may include fee attendance records, exam results, payment history, and general academic progress. The simplified communication tools of the system will help in better communication of students and parents with teachers.
