The Problem and Its Background
In the past, pre-enrollment systems took a lot of time to accomplish, from securing plenty of forms, to getting cleared, enlisting subjects, and scheduling. Some schools even have subject advisement before and after the enlistment phase. All these processes were done manually and were very time consuming. Now however, with the option of porting all these operations over the internet, they have become faster to do, more convenient, and easily scalable. This chapter will cover the current systems for clearance, enlistment, and classroom management of Cosmopoint International Institute of Technology (CIIT) and propose an online system to manage these tasks. It will discuss the background of the study, answering what the study is about, who is conducting the study, for whom is the study done for, etc. It will also include a profile of the institution where the study is being done along with a summary of the study. It will point out the objectives of the study, both general and specific, problems of the study, also both general and specific, and its scope and limitations. It will also show a conceptual model which would show how the project will be executed. Lastly, it will go over the terms used for the study and explain them in a simple manner. The objective of the study is to propose an online clearance, enlistment, and classroom management system for the efficiency of accomplishing these tasks and for the convenience of CIIT students and staff. The proponent of this study are Elaine L. de Goma. The study is being conducted in CIIT and the project will be implemented in the same organization. The study is being done because the current Enlistment and Clearance System of the school requires the students to go around the school looking for instructors and staffs to sign clearance forms and to queue in line repeatedly to submit or get other forms. The process can take an hour or so, or more if the student is unfortunate enough to arrive at the school when it’s nearing lunch break. An online Enlistment and Clearance System would enable a cleared student to enlist and get an assessment of his tuition fees from his house and only go to the school when he is about to enrol. Also, making the enlistment and clearance system online now will lessen the work needed to accommodate a growing school in the future. The classroom management aspect of the project is for the school’s administration so they can easily appropriate classrooms and schedules to subjects without the problem of overlapping schedules.
