I am a math teacher in a public high school. I currently use a Microsoft Works Suite 2003 database to keep track of all my student's grades. The database allows me to enter their grades in the "list" view and print progress reports for each child in the "form" view. I would like to be able to upload my database file on a weekly basis to my website so that parents may view their child's progress report. The catch is, I need to protect my student's right to confidentiality. So, I would need to have a way for parents to use a password to access their child's records only. So I guess this is what I need: 1. A program that can access my database files by record with a password. 2. A way for parents to "view" their child's progress report on-screen even if they do not have Microsoft Works 2003. I'm open to suggestions, if this is not going to run a poor teacher too far into debt!
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done that can perform all the functions I outlined in the introduction above. It must be practical, and easy to use for me and for my students' parents. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. I use a Dell PC, that runs Windows XP. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
The program needs to be compatable with my Dell PC, that operates with Windows XP. I need to have a program that I can readily upload to the internet to be used. I do not know what software is best for uploading and maintaining my website, so the coder can offer suggestions as to recommending software for this purpose. They can then build the program to work with that software. I would liek the program to be compatable with all versions of Internet Explorer 3.0+ and Netscape.
