Another Admissions Appointment

leave a comment »

First of all, apologies for the corny title. I just wanted something AAA.

Anyway, last Friday, we had another meeting with Dr. Franco of the Office of Admissions. We demonstrated our project again, including the actual flow from building a template to the verification of data. His concerns about checking the integrity of the printed output were also addressed in our demo. Overall, he was pleased with how our project has progressed since we first showed it to him. He even gave ideas about our paper! Yay!

We set a final-final meeting with him to check if everything about our project is okay already since there were some things needed to be added in the printed version of the grades.

Hello, Dr. Franco!

with one comment

After our meeting with Ma’am Leah, we went to the Office of Admissions for our consultation with Dr. Franco. It was actually past office hours but good thing Dr. Franco was okay with us doing the demo-slash-consultation.

The response was generally positive, though he did point out some things that could be improved in the next iteration of our project. For one, if ever the principal sees a mistake in the grades, the encoder has to edit and re-process the grades and the principal has to re-check all of it again since the data is stored in one XML file. It would be great according to Dr. Franco if there’s a way to edit only that one (or few) incorrect entries. Also, this software will be part of the initial steps in UPCAT application, so there’s no UPCAT # yet, so student ID would be better.
