Background of the Study
Modern technology has changed people's lifestyle and the way of living. A person could know what is happening on the other side of the world, chat with others about different matters because of the internet. Computer has been an integral part in all aspects of the society. Computers serve as efficient data storage systems and excellent information processors. They can store, organize and manage huge amounts of data. Computers also possess networking capabilities, which makes it possible to connect multiple computers and achieve an exchange of information between them. Moreover, they operate on incomparable speeds, thus saving human time and effort to a large extent. True, they are an integral part of our lives. It is said that inventions change the way we live. Computer technology is a classic example of this adage. It has indeed changed our way of living.
Computers can perform complex mathematical operations and process large amounts of information. Computers perform long and complex calculations within seconds. They can be programmed to execute complex instruction sequences through the use of programming languages. Computer technology has given rise to industries and has changed the face of the world. Computers have been playing a very vital function not only in the business world but in the education sector as well. Schools depend on computers because of its multi-tasks that it performs.
The Mayor Guillermo A. Barsatan Memorial School of Arts and Trades (MGABMSAT) uses a paper-based examination in their admission test and in all of their subjects. This kind of examination system entails a lot of work. Sometimes it is the cause of delay in the announcement of results.
The inconvenient process of preparing paper-based examination creates huge problem that affects the members of the faculty. The researchers would like to design and develop a Computer Aided Examination hope to eliminate the activities of the existing system. This is an automated system that will make examination and evaluation become easier and faster.
RATIONALE OF THE STUDY
The Computer-Aided Examination will render a more systematic examination. It will also provide a more convenient process of administering the examination. The examinees can get the result immediately. This study will also reduce clerical effort of the personnel involved in the manual system especially to the examiners. And this was designed to improve the existing system.
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Generally, this study aims to design and develop a Computer Aided Examination which will pose faster and more efficient administration of college admission test. Specifically, it will aim to answer the following:
1. How is the process of the current system?
2. What are the problems encountered that needs improvement in the current system? 3. What are the possible solutions or actions to undertake in the development of the existing system? 4. How is the introduction and implementation of the developed system to the school and to the society?
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
General Objective: This study aims to design and develop more systematic system “LAN-BASED Computer Aided Examination of Mayor Guillermo A. Barsatan Memorial School of Arts and Trades”. Specific Objectives:
1. To investigate and analyze the existing system of Mayor Guillermo A. Barsatan Memorial School of Arts and Trades; 2. To determine what part of the existing system needs improvement; 3. To develop a computerized system which is based from the present manual system; and 4. To introduce and implement the developed computerized system.
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
The Teachers. The system lessen their works in making a Paper-Based Examination and checking the test papers.
The Students. The system will provide an immediate result of their examination.
The School. The system will provide a more...
