The purpose of this thesis is to develop a course evaluation system and a symbols submission system for the student registration database of Chulalongkorn University, by using the data from instructors and the Office of Registrar of Chulalongkorn University as the case study. The process of recording and compiling symbols, together with the instructors' requirements of using the student registration data in an electronic file format, course evaluation by computer, and the submission of the symbols have been studied. The instructors' requirements specification have been accomplished by conducting interviews with sample group of instructors, then creating relevant questionnaires, before sending to all instructors. Two systems have been developed, based upon the results gathered: a course evaluation system and a symbols submission system. First, the course evaluation system is created to assist the instructors' evaluation process. The system is highly flexible as the students' registration data from the Officeof Registrar can be used as input. Moreover the evaluation results can be sent to the symbols submission system. The course evaluation system is a standalone application which is developed for on PC's running Microsoft Windows, using Microsoft Visual Basic as the development tool and Microsoft Access as a DBMS. Second, the symbols submission system is constructed to support the Office of Registrar in the process of recording and compiling symbols. Three submission channels are available for instructors, i.e. CR58 report, diskette, and via the Internet. However it is not necessary for the submitted symbols to be generated from the course evaluation system; it can be created by any method of choices. Furthermore, digital signature technology is provided as an authentication measure, and ensures the accuracy of the data. This system is a client/web server based which is developed with JAVA, using Microsoft Access as a simulation DBMS, obtained from the IT system of the Office of Registrar. Test result indicates that both developed systems can harmoniously work together and successfully achieve the thesis objectives. It is expected that they are compatible with the Office of Registrar's IT system once officially launched.
