the proper development of a society, its educational institutions play a very
important role. They provide the society something which may be termed as its backbone,
i.e., the educational youth. The proper functioning of these institutions thus
directly contributes to the advancement and development of the society. When
looked from a system's point of view, the educational institutions comprise
students, faculty, and backup facilities. If the institutions have to work efficiently
and for the maximum benefit of the society, all these aspects have to be
has been undertaken by some faculty at Osun State Polytechnic, Iree regarding
the evaluation of these different aspects. It has included the evaluation of the
students, the teachers, the academic programs, and the advising system. This project
is another attempt in this direction. It presents an important aspect of any
admission department. First, it analyzes the present of manual working in the Screening
and scoring System in Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, Osun State. Realizing the
importance which computers have achieved in every field including the
educational field, the project then presents a computerized system of screening
and scoring. It discusses the salient features of this system and the
advantages that the system has over the manual working.
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
project is focused on the use of computer in scoring and screening of newly
admitted student of Osun State Polytechnic, Iree. It will coordinate the basic
requirement for admission, scoring and screening of each candidte, the
specification of department, computing candidate information, and eventually
given a report on admission status of each candidate
1.3 AIM AND OBJECTIVE
aim of this project on electronic scoring and screening system is to build a
system that will be effective and dependable to solve problem of manual scoring
and screening system.
objectives of this project are as follows:
1. To allow easy retrieval and
indexing of data about any student without wasting time.
2. To process large volume of
data:- a lot of task can be done by using computer to process large volume of
data in an hour which can done manually by five personnel for days.
3. To minimize the number of
staff:- the total number of personnel required in admission department is
reduced since computer will take their duties.
4. Omissions and errors of scores
calculation are reduced since computer is going to handle the calculation.
5. To conveniently store large
data: - Records for candidates register are kept in electronic form. i.e. in
the computer instead of making use of big file and paper which occupy a lot of
PURPOSE OF THE
1. Student Screening and Scoring
System Supports the student admission and registration process, the maintenance
of student personal, academic other related data.
2. Database maintained by this
system usually contains the student’s personal, academic and all related
information. It focuses on storing and processing (insertion, updating
3. Generates student information
in formatted tables.
4. Generate Student’s Academic
5. Generate Student’s Personal
6. Compute the admission status of
7. It Stores Merit list provided
SCOPE OF STUDY
application the Software will work for an institute conducting screening and
scoring for student to be admitted into a governing university, polytechnic or
college of education.
are admitted according to their merit in examination and their choice of course.
Activities like Updating, Creations done in the system by the System Operator
will be maintained in the form of tables for auditing and maintaining the
integrity of the system.
1.5 JUSTIFICATION OF STUDY
has widely proved to be very accurate and able to perform complex calculation
with less or not error at all. The following benefits are provided by computerized
scoring and screening system:
retrieved and fast information can be achieved
can conveniently store very large data
of personnel required is minimal
provides better security against the access of unauthorized users.
DEFINITION OF TERMS
Automation: Automation is the use of
control systems and information technologies to reduce the need for human work
in the production of goods and services. In the scope of industrialization,
automation is a step beyond mechanization. Whereas mechanization provided human
operators with machinery to assist them with the muscular requirements of work,
automation greatly decreases the need for human sensory and mental requirements
as well. Automation plays an increasingly important role in the world economy
and in daily experience.
Screening: Screening is the
investigation of a great number of something (for instance, people) looking for
those with a particular problem or feature. The investigation of a large
population is related; the members of a population are filtered by a
metaphorical, rather than physical, screen. If only part of a population is
screened, screening is equivalent to sampling in statistics.
computer is a programmable machine designed to sequentially and automatically
carry out a sequence of arithmetic or logical operations. The particular
sequence of operations can be changed readily, allowing the computer to solve
more than one kind of problem. An important class of computer operations on
some computing platforms is the accepting of input from human operators and the
output of results formatted for human consumption. The interface between the
computer and the human operator is known as the user interface. is a
programmable machine designed to sequentially and automatically carry out a sequence
of arithmetic or logical operations.
