DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ONLINE JAMB EXAMINATION PROCESSING SYSTEM
A CASE STUDY JAMB, LAGOSABSTRACT
Computer are known for their wide range of uses especially in scientific and mathematical field. However, title or no thought has been given to designing a complete and true intelligence test on a computer system in our immediate environment. Although in advanced countries where computerized games have been developed computers have proved that they constitute ways of indirectly testing intelligence
This system is designed in order to implement and intelligence test on a computer system, it tries as much as possible to incorporate the important aspect of intelligence on a wide scale. It is designed to test intelligence of secondary school learners using the Jamb matriculation Examination (JME) as standardized sample and as such the psychological implication of such a design is very important.
The design of the system is quite and easily understood. It’s flexibility makes it amendable for future changes and amendment to either incorporate other aspects of intelligence or to be designed for any other school age or class.
The question of the intelligence test are programmed and visually displayed in the system’s screen in an interaction form. The pupil answer the question on the computer system. the results obtained from the test give an estimation on user’s (pupil) intelligence quotient (I.Q). this is equally displayed and tells the pupil in the what category he/she falls within. The result of the test is also displayed at the end of the test which goes a long way lessen the fear of the pupil that they were marked down in the examination.
The JME coordinators were really finding it very hard based on the type of processing procedures that they are using. The manual process entails a lot of complex mistake, Errors, even missing of scripts. Many at times someone that sat for the Examination si been given the result of science subject while he / she sit for arts or management subject.
There have been a situation whereby someone that did not sit for the Examination after processing the forms, got sick and was admitted. When JME result for that year came out, they sent a result for the exam he did not sit for.
It takes time to process the results through the manual process. If the new system is implement, there will efficient, no complex mistakes, No errors and also the time factors will be shortened compared to the present system of JME processing strategy.THE ORGANIZATION OF WORK The project is grouped into different chapter
CHAPTER ONE: Deals with the introduction, statement of problem, purpose of study, aims and objectives, scope and delimitation. Limitation and definition of terms.
CHAPTER TWO: Is talking about the review of related literature
CHAPTER THREE: It is description and analysis of the existing system, objectives of the existing system, input process and output specification, information flow diagram, problems of the existing system justification of the new system.
CHAPTER FOUR: Is the design of the new system, which consists of output specification and design, input specification and design, file design, procedure chart, system flow chart and system requirement.CHAPTER FIVE: Is the implementation which include program design, program flow chart, source program, test run
CAHPTER SIX: Is the documentation while chapter seven is the final chapter consisting recommendation, conclusion, appendices references

In the past, ability test were used in admitting pupil into the university level, for instance, the scholastic aptitude test, which measures both aptitude and achievement, (the aptitude test measures accomplished skills and indicate what a person can do at present, while the achievement test predicts what a person can accomplished with training.)
But the essential requirement for any test include reliability, validity and uniform testing procedures. The test which measures intelligence ability are often called “ intelligence test” intelligence test are usually designed to access the nature and course of mental development, intellectual and non-intellectual personality differences that might be attributed to hereditary among person at different occupational level and among their children. Intellectual and other traits of a typical group such as the mentally gifted, the mentally retarded, the neurotic and the psychotic.
The topic design and implementation of On-line JME Examination processing system (OLJMEPS) is geared towards impacting intelligence on a computer. Whereby Jamb matriculation Examination will be conducted and taken on the computer system itself and the result displayed to user (pupil) immediately after the examination or once it is compiled sequentially.
One may ask this question. Is this realistic? On the face value it might be seen impossible, but with the advent of computer games, computers have proved that they constitute ways of indirectly testing intelligence.
1.1 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM.
In the Administration of the JAMB Matriculation Examination (JME), the exam comes as objective and the answer expected to be shaded on the same question paper and marked by the examiners. The scoring and grading of results and posting of pupils to various higher institutions subsequently has been be divided by various human related factors such as favoritism, graft, bribery and corruption as well as late posting owing to volume of work fatigue and negligence of duty.
Natural human errors also occur usually thereby leaving the whole system ineffective.
1.2 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The study is to enable the researchers find out the problems encountered by the jamb Matriculation Examination body in conducting and administering Jamb matriculation examination with a view to developing a computerized system that will take care of the problems listed. In the introduction page.
1.3 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The objectives of this topic “ON-LINE JME EXAMINATION PROCESSING SYSTEM” is to enhance the use of Computer and processes of their result and admitting them where necessary as individual choice desire. This project enables the organizers to access the intelligence. Capabilities of pupils to be admitted into university schools.
The project aims at incorporation of the time on computer to be able to shop the pupil on the exact time. With the use of computer system the area of our concentration are achieved.
1.4 THE SCOPE OF THE STUDY
The scope of this work is to outline the practical use of computer system in the area of secondary school leaves to be admitted into tertiary institution
This work is designed for solely accessing the result (test) and processing of secondary school leavers into tertiary institutions
