A Model Driven Approach for Software Systems Quality in Examination System

P. Kabilan, Dr. K. Iyakutti


EGovernance is a way for Universities to use the new technologies to provide students with more convenient way to access University information and services. EGovernance provides tremendous opportunities to move forward in the 21st century with better quality, cost-effective University services and a better relationship between students and their affiliated Colleges. A Secure exam system is developed in .NET framework, to computerize all the examination processes, pre-examination data capturing, processing and declaring of results of all courses offered by the university including both under-graduate and post-graduate courses. The Developed software should have suitable security and integrity mechanism. Developers should impart training to officials of the University and Colleges for the optimum utilization of the software.E-Governance offers a new way forward, helping to improve University processes, connect Students and build interactions with and within a Student Community. Three basic change potentials for good governance for development are Automation, Informatisation and Transformation.
