I. Abstract

The Student Information System (SIS) is designed to collect on-line applications from students for NIST programs such as the Student Volunteer Program (SVP) and Summer High School Intern Program (SHIP). The purpose of the application is to obtain information needed to evaluate applicant qualifications for potential positions.

The Student Information System is an online application which collects basic biographical information about the student. The application contains four sections. The first section collects personal information to include name, address, phone, email, program selection, work availability, and location preferences. The second section collects work and volunteer experience including start and end date, hours worked, name and address of employer, supervisor's contact information, job description, and job-related skills. The third section collects any special training, knowledge, skill, ability, and/or publications that demonstrate the applicant's skill sets to perform a position. The fourth section collects education information to include current enrollment, name and address of the educational institution, grade point average, and expected date of program completion.
