Design of a Hybridized-Database Web-Based Transcript Processing System (HWBTP)

Volume: 7 Issue: 1
Year of Publication: 2020
Authors: Susan Konyeha, Osazee Isere


The increase in the number of students in Nigerian universities has posed great challenges for university administration. These challenges include delayed computation and issuance of transcripts. This delay is there because most Nigeria Universities still use manual methods in generating transcripts. This process no doubt is time-wasting, more prone to errors, bureaucratic and stressful. With the enormous challenges of this manual system, in some cases, the transcript has been wrongly computed, while quite a number of students have lost brilliant job opportunities and admissions due to the unnecessary delay associated with the manual process. We observed that the major reason while most universities have not adopted most of these IT-based systems is that the departments have candid fear that if the processing of transcript is left for only the transcript officers to generate at a central point, data security may not be guaranteed. Because of this, some automated systems in other institutions still interact with the departments when requests for transcripts are made. This no doubt delays the response time to such requests. This research work is, therefore, proposing a hybridized-database web-based transcript processing system that generate transcript, verifies and approves electronically and also able to keep database at the departmental level for quick response to notification requests for verification from the transcript unit.
