RASED: Spreadsheet-Based Coursework e-Management System Supported by Performance Indicators

Abdullah Ahmad Salem Basuhail
Abstract— Higher education institutions' database management systems are used to maintain and retrieve students' academic records, but in most of the cases they lack further supports regarding coursework tracking or performance indicators. This paper presents the design, implementation and use of a computerized e-management system (named RASED). The system has been developed based-on practice, experience, academic and administrative requirements during the teaching of courses and training sessions. The system is used to manage and measure the performance in educational and training courses using several metrics and indicators. The advantages of this system are accuracy and flexibility in the management of coursework that will assist the staff of the academic colleges to follow-up the duties and activities of the students and trainees. RASED e-management system offers abundant information, and provides assistance in making the right decisions at critical times. Moreover, the system assists to reply precisely instead of speculatively in the cases of inquires or in the situations that require proactive follow-up before getting to the final consequences, which are usually late or too difficult to remedy. The system is developed by attainable tools that are available at relatively low-cost and minimum development effort and time compared with other development techniques. RASED system has been used by a number of staff at some academic and training institutions. It contributed to the effectiveness of the use of electronic systems, to the dissemination of a culture shift towards digital society, and to emphasize importance of the use of modern technology in the management of the educational process. In addition, this paper may serve as a framework for the design and implementation of e-management spreadsheet-based systems that can be used in other educational, training and business disciplines.

Index Terms— E-management, coursework, performance-indicators, spreadsheets.
