Trivandrum: The Kerala Government has made Sampoorna Online School Management Software mandatory for capturing details of all students from Std 1 to 12. Sampoorna, developed by IT@School entirely on a FOSS platform, is a one-stop source for all details of students.
The government has now directed all schools in the State including Government and Aided Schools, CBSE, ISCE, Kendriya Vidyalayas and Recognised Un-Aided schools to capture complete details of their students only through Sampoorna. It is expected to cover 50 lakhs students from 15,000 schools in this portal this month.
Currently, different sections under Education Department, as well as other agencies and departments, collect the same data from schools in different formats either online or offline, which often creates confusion at various levels. By making Sampoorna mandatory, now there will only be a single form of data acquisition for all schools in the state. This also paves way for a complete digital data collection mechanism in Education Department, eventually creating a paperless environment. Sampoorna would be enhanced with details required for other institutions also such as Pareeksha Bhavan, SSA, RMSA and Statistics Wing. The Government Order also directs the Educational Directorates to issue periodic instructions for ensuring the authenticity of data captured in ‘Sampoorna’.
Sampoorna is equipped to provide with a multitude of student details such as Admission Register, Transfer Certificate, different reports of students including Progress Reports, list generation for various Scholarships, Promotion list preparation, Preparation of A-list for SSLC examination, Entry forms for Sports, Games and Kalosavam etc and even for issue of Identity Card for Students. The unique application was launched by IT@School in 2010 as part its e-Governance initiatives.
“On the background of the General Education Rejuvenation Mission, being carried out in the State, we would raise the bar high for Sampoorna, where it is possible to assess the learning progress of a student right from their admission in the 1st standard and even to discover their talents”, said K Anvar Sadath, Executive Director, IT@School Project.
In addition to student details, Sampoorna would also capture the details of teachers and non-teaching staff of every school, thereby making it a Comprehensive School Management Software.
