E-Assessment of Bi-Weekly Report: A Case Study of National Orientation Agency (NOA), Imo State, Nigeria
This paper is aimed at developing software for checkmating the problems associated with manual report assessment in organisations that receive reports on regular basis from field officers in different locations. This work would eliminate manual method deficiencies such as time wastage, wrong computation, and lack of database. It would also make report process easier both for the field officers and the assessment officers. The software is user-friendly and interactive. The system design approach used in this research was the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) model, which employs seven phases of Project Identification and Selection, Project Initiation and Planning, Analysis, Logical Design, Physical Design, Implementation, and Maintenance. The method of data collection was personal interview and published materials. Visual Basic programming language and Microsoft Access were used for the implementation. The major contribution of this work is that it eases report submission, assessment, and feedback collection by exploiting Information Technology effectively.
