SRS Documantation: Online Examination System (BCS-051)

Develop SRS for Online Examination System. SRS should be in IEEE format. Make necessary assumptions.

Software Requirements Specification (SRS)
Online Examination System

1. Introduction
   1.1 Purpose
   The purpose of this document is to provide a detailed specification for the development of an Online Examination System.
   1.2 Scope
   The Online Examination System is intended to facilitate the process of conducting examinations online. It will allow administrators to create and manage exams, and students to take the exams remotely. The system will support various types of questions and provide automated grading and result generation.

   1.3 Definitions, Acronyms, and Abbreviations
   - SRS: Software Requirements Specification
   - OES: Online Examination System

2. Overall Description
   2.1 Product Perspective
   The Online Examination System will function as a standalone web-based application. It will interact with the users through a web browser. The system will store exam questions, student information, and exam results in a database.

   2.2 Product Functions
   The Online Examination System will provide the following features:
   - User Management: Administrators can manage user accounts, including registration, login, and password reset.
   - Exam Creation: Administrators can create exams, define exam parameters, set time limits, and select question types.
   - Question Bank: Administrators can manage a repository of questions, including creation, editing, and categorization.
   - Exam Taking: Students can access and take exams, view and answer questions, and submit their answers within the specified time.
   - Automated Grading: The system will automatically grade objective-type questions and provide immediate feedback to students.
   - Result Generation: The system will generate exam results, including scores and performance analysis.

   2.3 User Characteristics
   The Online Examination System will have the following user roles:
   - Administrator: Responsible for managing the system, creating exams, managing questions, and overseeing user accounts.
   - Students: Registered users who can take exams and view their results.

   2.4 Constraints
   - The system will be developed using PHP and a MySQL database.
   - The system should be compatible with popular web browsers.
   - The system should ensure the security and integrity of user data and exam content.

   2.5 Assumptions and Dependencies
   - It is assumed that users have basic computer literacy and internet access to use the system.
   - The system will depend on a stable internet connection for user access and data storage.

3. Specific Requirements
   3.1 External Interface Requirements
      3.1.1 User Interfaces
      - Registration Page: Users can create new accounts.
      - Login Page: Users can authenticate and access the system.
      - Exam Interface: Students can view and answer questions during an exam.
      - Admin Panel: Administrators can manage exams, questions, and user accounts.
      3.1.2 Hardware Interfaces
      The system should be accessible through standard hardware configurations, including personal computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with internet connectivity.
      3.1.3 Software Interfaces
      - Web Browsers: The system should be compatible with popular web browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
      - Database: The system will interact with a MySQL database for storing exam data and user information.

   3.2 Functional Requirements
      3.2.1 User Management
      - Allow users to register for an account.
      - Provide login functionality for registered users.
      - Support password reset and recovery.
      3.2.2 Exam Management
      - Enable administrators to create exams, specifying exam details, such as title, duration, and instructions.
      - Allow administrators to add, edit, and delete questions from the question bank.
      - Enable administrators to

 select questions from the question bank and add them to an exam.
      3.2.3 Exam Taking
      - Allow students to access assigned exams.
      - Present exam questions to students one at a time.
      - Provide options for multiple-choice, true/false, and essay-type questions.
      - Enable students to submit their answers within the specified time limit.
      3.2.4 Grading and Result Generation
      - Automatically grade objective-type questions.
      - Provide immediate feedback to students.
      - Generate exam results, including scores and performance analysis.
   3.3 Performance Requirements
   - The system should handle concurrent access by multiple users without significant performance degradation.
   - The response time for user actions, such as submitting answers or viewing results, should be within acceptable limits.

   3.4 Design Constraints
   - The system should have a responsive and intuitive user interface to ensure ease of use and accessibility.
   - The system should follow best practices for data security and encryption to protect user data and exam content.

4. Appendices
   - Supplementary Information: Any additional diagrams, mockups, or prototypes that aid in understanding the requirements.
   - Glossary: Definitions of terms, acronyms, and abbreviations used throughout the document.

Please note that the above SRS for an Online Examination System provides a general outline and may need to be further customized based on specific project requirements and constraints.
