Introduction
This is a Education based website which have 2 modules one is student(user) and second is administrator . Administrator can upload and make quiz's and online test's and other education related application's and create events for student's. student can make here own account in which he can give online test and in the end the final result is shown and result goes emailed to his registered email Id .there is some small games applications for the primary school student who can play and learn with these games.

Administration and student both can share own data on this website by uploading and downloading it. this is a part of the e-data sharing. The present example is lionshare and ZOHO website's which is used in LPU for online student test's but they don't have concept of e-data sharing.

The main aim of this project report is to highlight the features as follows: To show how the project is developing. To show the details of design.

Online Exam System and Data Sharing 2011


To show how the users can work with the software. To show what requirements are included in project? NATURE OF PROJECT: WEB BASED APPLICATION

A Web application is an application that is accessed via Web browser over a network such as the Internet or an intranet. It is also a computer software application that is coded in a browsersupported language and reliant on a common web browser to render the application executable. Web applications are popular due to the ubiquity of a client, ability to update and maintain Web applications without distributing and installing software on potentially thousands of client computers is a key reason for their popularity. Web based applications have evolved significantly over recent years and with improvements in security and technology there are plenty of scenarios where traditional software based applications and systems could be improved by migrating them to a web based application.

Below are some of the core benefits of web-based applications. Cross platform compatibility. Most web-based applications are far more compatible across platforms than traditional installed software. Typically, the minimum requirement would be a web browser like Internet Explorer, Fire fox, Netscape etc. These web browsers are available for a multitude of operating systems and so whether you use Windows, Linux, or Mac OS you can still run the web application. More manageable Web based systems need only be installed on the server placing minimal requirements on the end user workstation. This makes maintaining and updating the system much simpler as usually it can all be done on the server. Any client updates can be deployed via the web server with relative ease.

Online Exam System and Data Sharing 2011

Highly deployable Due to the manageability and cross platform, support deploying web applications to the end user is far easier. They are also ideal where bandwidth is limited and the system and data is remote to the user. At their most deployable, you simply need to send the user a website address to log in to and provide them with internet access. This has huge implications allowing you to widen access to your systems, streamline processes, and improve relationships by providing more of your customers, suppliers, and third parties with access to your systems. Secure live data Typically, in larger systems those are more complex data is stored and moved around separate systems and data sources. In web-based systems, these systems and processes can often be consolidated reducing the need to move data around. Web based applications also provide an added layer of security by removing the need for the user to have access to the data and back end servers. Reduced costs Web based applications can dramatically lower costs due to reduced support and maintenance, lower requirements on the end user system and simplified architecture. By further streamlining your business operations because of your web, based application additional savings can often be found.

EXISTING SYSTEM In this section we will discuss about already existing manual system of operation. In system study we first analyze the drawbacks of the existing system or shortcoming of the existing system. We study there are changes required in the system. By system study we find following drawbacks in existing system. Complicated: When large number of students arrives for the examination, to maintain the huge no of students on a single place for examination It takes lots of time and management of such large no. of students is a difficult task . Redundancy: As data is maintained in different files and register, there is possibility that duplication data is stored thus wastage of storage space. Time Consuming: The system is manual system, it takes lot of time for the examination for example in its difficult to manage and keep record of each student simultaneously. It is difficult to handle more than one visitor at a time. It is difficult to provide examination system service for 24 hours a day. Record Management: It is a very tangible job in manual database system. Inaccuracy: Some time there may be chance of wrong calculation in result generation. Existing system is not according to current demand. No Report Generation: In Existing, system there is not any automatic report/result generation facility.

Online Exam System and Data Sharing 2011


Inconsistency: In the existing system, there are no checks or constraints so; the duplication may make the data inconsistent.

Unauthorized Access: There is no way to restrict unauthorized access to the data except putting the files under lock and key. Due to above reasons the change in the existing system is required for the change we have to perform the feasibility study. The success of a system largely depends upon how accurately the problem is defined and investigation. Until, the problems are clearly defined and evaluated, should we think about solutions. Whats new in the system to be developed? Proposed system is expected to remove the problems of the existing system and provide valueadded solution to the problem. Due to limitation in the existing system it is felt to switch over to a new system that covers all the possible aspects: Proposed system with objectives 1.Proposed System is automated and web based system so that's why it has very fast processing speed. 2.Records management is very easy job in database. 3.There may be not any chance of wrong calculation of amount. 4.Proposed system is according to current demand. 5.In Proposed system there is automatic report/result generation facility. 6.Security and privacy is possible by using user name and password.

FEASIBILITY STUDY

Depending on the results of initial investigation the survey is expanded to more detailed feasibility study. The objective of feasibility study is not to solve the problem but to acquire a sense of its scope during the study the problem definition is crystallized and aspects of the problem to be included in the system are determined. Consequently, costs and benefits are determined with greater accuracy. Types of Feasibility There are various measures of feasibility that helps to decide whether a particular project is feasible or not. These measures include1.Technical Feasibility 2.Operational Feasibility 3.Economical and Financial Feasibility Technical Feasibility Study The technical issues raised during the technical feasibility analysis are: 1.Does the necessary technology exist to do what is suggested? Yes, necessary technologies exists, Project will be develop using asp.net, SQL server 2008, .net framework 3.5 and C# language.

Online Exam System and Data Sharing 2011


Will the proposed system & components provide adequate responses to inquiries, regardless of the number or locations of users? Yes it can be achieved by having a good bandwidth dedicated to the website and good networking.

Can the system be expanded? System is build using 2 tier architecture (can be expendable to 3-tier), and proper documentation so that new person can join and understand project and add something new to the project.

Operational Feasibility Study We have designed front end in ASP.net by getting the information from the end user, which help us in designing the GUI according to the end users requirements. The end users can easily understand and expand it in the future. Economical Feasibility Study It involve estimating cost and benefits that can be tangible and intangible because of confusing between the types of costs it is sometimes very difficult to divide the benefits out weight the cost. WHAT ARE THE USERS DEMONSTRABLE NEEDS? User needs a web-based system, which will remove all the above-mentioned Problems that, the user is facing. The user wants a web-based system, which will reduce the bulk of paperwork, provide ease of work, flexibility, fast record finding, modifying, adding, removing and generating the reports. HOW CAN THE PROBLEM BE REDEFINED? We proposed our perception of the system, in accordance with the problems of existing system by making a full layout of the system on paper. We tallied the problems and needs by existing system and requirements. We were further updating in the layout in the basis of redefined the

13

Online Exam System and Data Sharing 2011


problems. In feasibility study phase we had undergone through various steps, which are described as under:

How feasible is the system proposed?


This was analyzed by comparing the following factors with both the existing system and proposed system. Cost: The cost required in the proposed system is comparatively less to the existing system. Effort: Compared to the existing system the proposed system will provide a better working environment in which there will be ease of work and the effort required will be comparatively less than the existing system. Time: Also the time required generating a report or for doing any other work will be comparatively very less than in the existing system. Record finding and updating will take less time than the existing system. Labor: In the existing system the number of staff required for completing the work is more, while the new system will require quite less number of staff.
