Web Based Research Project Monitoring and Evaluation System
The project entitled Web Based Research Project Monitoring and Evaluation System is an online platform that will possibly replace the manual process of monitoring and evaluation of research projects. The purpose of the study was to design, develop and implement an information system that is capable of archiving research projects in an electronic manner. The core functions of the online platform is to provide the researchers/proponents a feature that will allow them to update the task, activities and as well as to give feedbacks on their on-going projects. Two standardized questionnaire were used to evaluate the functionality of the system and the level of acceptance on the part of the end-users. Results of the evaluation showed that the system passed all the standards based on the criteria’s of the questionnaire. It was recommended by the researchers to implement the said project in order to properly monitor and evaluate the research projects.
Research is one of the core functions of a faculty or instructor. It is not just a requirement but through research, it can provide solutions to most of our problems. Information systems or commonly known as automation is one of the products of research, it makes recording and reporting easier, faster and more accurate compare to manual process or record keeping.
Due to the limited number of personnel assigned in the research department, it is very difficult for them to monitor the research projects conducted by the faculty members, staff and other stake holders of the institution.
It is the role of the researchers to find a way in order to address the gap, that’s why we in the Computer Studies program decided to design and develop a platform for project monitoring and evaluation.
Project monitoring and evaluation system will focus on the research projects conducted by the faculty members of a tertiary education. It is an online platform designed to monitor and evaluate different research projects and as well as to provide a communication between the researchers and the research and development office.
This system can also assure the realization of all objectives agreed, prior the beginning of the project. A good monitoring and evaluation system is proven to give benefits for organization to achieve successful outcomes from their projects . It also can ensure the transparency of the projects .
The project aimed to design, develop and implement a database driven application in a form of project monitoring and evaluation system of research projects.
Specifically, the targets of the system are the following:
- Provide the users a module that allows them to encode the activities involved and allows them to set the completion date for every task. (somewhat similar to gantt chart)
- Provide a module to the users that allow them to mark the task as on-going, completed or postponed.
- To provide a control panel for the research department that will allow them to monitor and evaluate the research projects.
