DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN ON-LINE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION SYSTEM. A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE
The computer as an electronic and electromagnetic device is known for its versatile range of uses in every area of human endeavour more especially in scientific and mathematical calculations.
Although little thought has been given to designing a complete and concise intelligence test on a computer system online in our present environment. However, in developed countries where computerized games and robot systems have been developed, computers have proved that they constitute ways of indirectly testing intelligence.
This project is designed in order to implement an intelligence test on a computer system online. It tries as much as possible to incorporates the advantageous aspect of intelligence on a wide scale. It is designed to test the intelligence of primary school leavers using the common entrance examination and first school leaving examination as a standardized sample, and as such the psychological implication of such a design is very relevant.
The design in the system is quite simple and easy to understand. Its flexibility make it amendable for future changes and amendment to either incorporate other aspects of intelligence or to be designed for any other school age or class.
The questions of this intelligence test are programmed and visuals displayed on computer systems screen in a very interactive form. The student answers the question on the computer system.
The results obtained from the test gives an estimate of user’s (pupil’s) intelligence quotient (IQ). This is equally displayed and tells the pupil in what category he/she falls within. The result of the test is also displayed at the end of the test which goes a long way to lessen the fears of pupil’s that they were market down in the examination.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY
In the past years, ability test were used in admitting students into secondary and technical schools. For instance, the common entrance examination and aptitude test which measures both aptitude, intelligence and achievement. The aptitude test measure accomplished skills and indelicate what a person can do at present.
But the essential requirements for any test include reliability, validity and uniform testing procedure. The test which measure general intelligence ability are often called “INTELLIGENCE TEST”.
