School of CSIT Checking of Attendance, Now Computerized

By Gertrude G. Danao
Dean, School of Computing Sciences and Information Technology
A computerized system that will facilitate a faster and easier checking of student’s attendance during the implementation of departmental and/or institutional programs is now being utilized at the School of CSIT. The system was developed by Mr. Rogie B. Taborda, an IT instructor whose objectives in developing the system are the following: to make the checking of attendance easier and faster; to keep accurate records of students attendance; to eradicate or at least minimize complaints of students on erroneous data on attendance; and to inspire IT students to develop computerize systems that will make processes easier.

The system is a two tiered client-server system developed in Visual Basic 6 with MySQL as its back-end. The system enables simultaneous work stations to function and perform the task of checking attendance. The system generates detailed and summarized reports of student’s attendance for a certain activity, list of activities during a semester or school year, percentage of attendance or participation for a certain activity; percentage of attendance or participation for all activities during a semester or for the whole school year and list of students officially enrolled in BSIT. The system can display details such as students name, gender, age, sex, course and year for access and validation. The system uses the ID number as its primary key used to input student’s attendance.

Mr. Taborda, a Jose Rizal Awardee and a Likha Awardee of this institution is a 2007 BSIT graduate. He with his groupmates proposed and successfully defended their thesis entitled, “Internet Service Provider (ISP) Billing and Monitoring System”. The system they developed served as his springboard in developing SCSIT’s computerized system of checking attendance.
