Hey everyone!
I am developing a database for the Attendance system in my university, I've created a blue print somehow and sketched out the entities on the paper. But still I'm a little bit confused about the tables, that might be there should be more number of tables should be available in my database. I'm sharing my concept kindly help me out in filtering my design further.

This System is only for the Attendance for the students in the university, so I have made the following tables in my database.

1. Teachers.
        a)id
        b)name
        c)designation
        d)courses_assigned
2. Students.
        a)id
        b)name
        c)roll_no
        d)courses_registered
        e)Rfid_tag_id
        f)attendance %
        g)registeration_Status
        h)username
        i)password
        j)attendance marked(Boolean)
3. Admin/Users. (Will it be good to make them seperately?)
        a)id
        b)username
        c)password
4. Courses.
        a)id
        b)course_name
        c)credit_hours
        d)teachers_teaching
        e)semester

Is that enough? or some more entity or table should be present in my design?
Can someone help me out regarding to the constraints? or Relationships between the tables?

I have other vision:

Users [id, name, username, password, role]
Field role can take 0 for admin, 1 for teachers, 2 for students

Teachers [id, iduser, designation]
Students [id, iduser, ... other data...]
iduser = id from table Users    

Courses [id, course_name, credit_hours, idteacher, semester]

idteacher - is id from Teachers - the id of teacher who teaching the course; that if a course is teaching by a single teacher otherwise you need a link table like this:
    course_teacher [id, idteacher, idcourse]
and from table Courses eliminate field idteacher

course_student [id, idcourse, idstudent, percent_attendance]
This is a link table becouse a student participate in several courses and one course is followed by more students

attendace [id, idcs, date, attendance marked(Boolean)]
 idcs is the id from table course_student
 or
 [id, idcourse, idstudent, date, attendance marked(Boolean)]

I hope this is help.
Regards.
