Abstract

Result processing is a major task for any educational institution. In the past, result processing software has been written on different platform such as stand-alone database system, distributed system e. t. c. The era of web based multi-tier system has necessitated that these software be re-engineered. This paper presents the re-engineering of result processing software of the Yaba College of Technology into a multi-modal system. The system analysis of existing software was conducted to know people pains and develop the requirement for the new system. A multimodal, 3-teir (separating the application into data access layer, program logic layer and the user interface) methodology was adopted in re-writing this software. The tools used include visual studio, Borland Delphi and SQL Server database. A modular design approach was adopted with five major modules designed each module serve as an interface for specific user group with assign privileges to ensure people only manipulate data that belongs to them. The implementation produced a robust, highly secured, multimodal system. The system was tested and found to cope with change in policies, unavailability of staff which might be due to industrial strike action, occasional unavailability of network and power failure. It operates in online and offline mode as such it works well and is efficient in managing students' results seamlessly. It has ability for forward and backward integration with student's portal; this has made the software highly efficient as registration data are handled directly by the portal while results are posted on the portal.
