  •  Saeed Jameel Aburizaizah    


For many justifications, the collection, analysis, and use of educational data are central to the evaluation and improvement of students’ progress and learning outcomes. The use of data in educational evaluation and decision making are expected to span all layers—from the institution, teachers, students, and classroom levels, providing a longitudinal record of each student’s performance over time. Such records/data can play a crucial role by giving students, teachers, parents, and stakeholders a scalable and efficient platform that track performance and lead to informed valid enhancement decisions. This paper provides a description of a proposed tracking system. Developed by an English Language institute. It has multiple key features and processes that can monitor the progress of students from day 1 till completing their study. It is a comprehensive integration of student data management and a monitoring system. Such data makes it possible to see if students are achieving their academic goals and administrator could see, as soon as possible, if a student is not progressing. The system is also useful in helping the institute to plan their educational activities every semester and improve data communication between administrator, teachers, and students.
