AUTOMATION OF STUDENT ADMISSION SYSTEM. A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
When one looked back with analytical mid, we can concluded that computer technology keeps an advancing with remarkable increase in speed accuracy and reliability. Computing in whatever field i.e. science, Business and industry is reaching directly or indirectly into various aspect of our society without loss of generality, the world has shrunk into such compactness that no part can afford to lack behind or lie in isolation.
The advert of computer was hated by the world as a great revolution like any industry revolution. It promised to free and from simple routine jobs of respective nature by providing computing power. The first to have exploited the facility was the search for scientific acquires, this was not unconnected with the fact the designers by these systems were Scientifics themselves. Several problems have been eliding satisfactory solutions through, numerical methods of solution exist but involved a very huge amount of computation then, by rendering the problem in accurately accomplished. Not only did computer make reliable solution possible it equally opened new application methods.
In the past years, an inspection at close observation of some admission offices in some reputable tertiary institution revealed that there has been lack of proper documentaries of admission forms. Also, much time was spent in sorting out qualified and non qualified forms. This has resulted to a meaningful lost of substantial efficiency and accuracy in the methods used for instance, in many tertiary institution, one could not adequately give details of applicants such as the total number of these that applied the number that qualified from each state or local government.
In view of the above, this project is design to implement effectively and efficiently the processing of admission for PRE- NCE and DEGREE programme.
Most higher institution of today are non among oat an efficient and standard method of selecting applicant.
- Purchasing admission forms
- Submitting the correctly completed forms
- Selecting the qualified applicants.
- Determine the number of intakes
- Compilation of the list of qualified applications
The afore-motional processes are carried out in this project with the aid of computer. There is no doubt that is these present days is as a result of the benefit derived from the prime requirement where are completing for skilled job today. The reality is that the factory machinery is computer based, air line reservations depend on compute, personnel, financial and administrative procedure have become computerized including the command and control functions of the military and the police.
This is what prompt the development of a software which will help management of Osun State College of Education, Ila In the area of student admission.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The ultimate statement of the proposed system is to over come the problems in the existing system and to create effectiveness one of these problems is the stressful and tedious way of finding out who and who qualified for admission.
Moreover, it will also enable the staff and management to have more time to think on how and what they can do to improve the future of the institution which they might never have time to do. Other statement of the problem is as follows.
- To reduce staff fatigue
- To reduce the processing time and acquire more accurate information.
- To ensure accuracy in the processing of forms.
- To implement a comprehensive data since for record keeping purpose.
- To provide the management with food decision making.
The project work lovers much of student admission into different facilities and departments, taken into consideration the entry and degree academics programmes.
Moreover, the project accommodates future modification of entry requirement for both programmes.
