DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF STUDENT PROJECT MANAGEMENT WITH EMPHASIS ON ALLOCATION AND VERIFICATION SYSTEM FOR MONITORY DUPLICATION

Postgraduate

ABSTRACT                  

This project is aimed at developing a web-based system, which manages the activity of “Student Project Management” and allocation. This system will manage the database and maintain a list of all student or groups of student that have registered as a finalist in this site, and for those students that been shortlisted who have passed the eligibility criteria as set by the lecturer/supervisor. The programming Language used is Php, MySql for database, and Xampp Server. This Language was chosen because of its object-oriented features and class libraries for developing online applications.

BACKGROUND OF STUDY

In many tertiary institutions in the country, students seek a project in a given field of specialty as part of the upper level of their degree programme. Usually, a project can be filled by at most one student, though in some cases a project is suitable for more than one student to work on simultaneously. To give students something of a choice, there should be as wide a range of available projects as possible, and in any case the total number of project places should not be less than the total number of students. Typically, a lecturer will also offer a range of projects, but does not necessarily expect that all will be taken up.

Each student has preferences over the available projects that he/she finds acceptable, whilst a lecturer will normally have preferences over the students that he/she is willing to supervise. There may also be upper bounds on the number of students that can be assigned to a particular project, and the number of students that a given lecturer is willing to supervise. In this paper, we consider the ways of allocating student project in our various institutions.

 

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The traditional way of allocating project to students in our higher institution need to be reconsidered since project/research writing is sensitive aspect of student education in the higher institution.

Before now, lecturers ask students to go out and get project topics for themselves for approval. This system made project writing look less like a class assignment which does not require an extra effort to complete rather an issue of copying.

 

OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY

With the advancement in file saving and file retrieval system, institution cannot afford to be ignorant of the basic tool, which is the driving force behind technological oriented administration.

 Much can be achieved if an institution has a well-organized management system. Students project can easily be allocated to each or group of students without the problem of delayed project allocation from the supervisor or conflict of topic between two individual or group of student in the same department. Students update can be easily being accessed if the database system is enhanced.
