A Series of Reviews of Student Information Systems (SIS)

For over 10 years I’ve worked with about 7 different Student Information Systems (SIS), too one degree or another.  Since I have generally worked with these both from the back-end (database administrator and institutional researcher) as well as from the front-end (teacher and school administrator), this puts me in a fairly unique position to be able to compare the advantages and disadvantages of each system.  Thus, I thought I should share my thoughts on the different SISes that I have had experience with, in order to help schools and school systems in choosing one.

So, over the coming week, I’ll be posting my reviews of:

For each review, I will be looking at 6 areas for each software:

  • User Interface
  • Built-In Features
  • Customer Service & Technical Support
  • Database Structure, Programming, and Underlying Technology
  • Integration, Customization, and Reporting
  • Security & Reliability
