SIS is intended to serve as students' interface to courses, requirements, and registration. Consensus is that SIS is unusable, at least for students and faculty, for the following reasons:
- The interface presents information in a user-memory intensive manner
- The current interaction (mad race) causes technical problems by high loads on the server
- The interface gives poor feedback on user actions and technical issues
- The interface requires unnecessarily specific user input
- This SIS generated student schedule is unnecessarily hard to read
- It provides functions that are not linked to the interface control
For this projct in Human Factors in Interface Design, we hope to fix this.
