This research was based ondeveloping an effective and efficientweb based student admission system. Selected applicants does not seem to be of standard and also it does not run efficiently.The ultimate statement of the proposed system is to overcome the problems in the existing system and to create effective system. One of these problems is the stressful and tedious ways of finding out who and who are qualified for admission. Student Admission System is a useful web and database program that helps in easy admission processes in higher institution.The researcher’s motivation for choice of topic is due to the poor management of the existing system which has resulted to stressing applicants, the researcher tends to implement the new system to stop the stress.The study adopted Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Methodology (OOADM) that is a set of standards for systems analysis and application design.The programming language used in developing this system is the HTML, CSS and PHP, with
Background of the Study
According to Holmes (2005), we can
conclude that computer technology keeps on 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. (Holmes, 2005).
The advert of computer was hated by
the world as a great revolution like any industrial revolution. It promised to
free users from simple routine jobs of respective nature by providing computing
power. The first to have exploited the facility was the search for scientific
research tool; this was not unconnected with the fact that the designers of
these systems were Scientists themselves. Several problems have been worked on
for satisfactory solutions though 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. (Ringsdrop, 2014).
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. (Ringsdrop, 2014).
In view of the above, this research
work is based on developing an effective and efficient web based student
admission system for National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).
National Open University of Nigeria
(NOUN) system of selecting applicants does not seem to be of standard and also
it does not run efficiently.
