Monsalve and Ilagan (2005), developed a program and designed using Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 and Microsoft access. The system is capable of receiving access, searching items, providing adequate information and data gathering.
The research is adopted to a descriptive method. This employs the systems analyses method oriented towards computer approach likewise with the utilization of questionnaire on the survey of the information flow within the organization.
This study will use the descriptive-survey of research, utilizing the questionnaire as the main gathering tool, which will be supported by relevant confidential information based on interview and observation. This method will be used because it is a status survey that will reveal the conditions and relations of the different processes and persons involved with the proposed system.
Respondent Of The Study
The respondent of the study will be the Administrators, Accountant/cashier, Registrar and the students. They should be known all the information involved in the system. Wherein, the researcher prepares a set of carefully prepared and logically ordered
Questions. This respondent focuses on the company’s employees/staff and students for they are very important in a sense that this study is all about them.
Data Gathering Instrument
These are the instruments or tools for gathering data in research used as basis for drawing conclusions or making inferences. Some of these tools are questionnaires, interviews, empirical observations, research and analysis used by the researcher as they will conduct the proposed study.
An Interview is defined as a meeting of two people face to face to confer about something or an act of questioning to receive a desired answer that is necessary in solving a specific problem. This is where data gathering occurs by asking questions for much needed information from the interviewee verbally and directly.
This technique is used when the researcher cannot secure adequate or valid data through the use of the questionnaire or some other technique. It is considered to be the most direct means of studying people in so far as their overt behavior is concerned. Observation of current operating procedure is another data gathering tool seeing the system in action gives you additional perspective and better understanding of system procedures.
A pre-written series of questions used in gathering important Information’s from one or more persons. This will be given to the Individual who have a direct bearing of the study and in order to satisfy the proponent’s goal that is to get and measure the opinions, polls and Attitude of the respondents of the study.
The researchers had undertaken the following procedure for the successful completion of the study.
the researchers had conducted an interview to the different respondents namely: the students, the employees and staff of the San Jacinto Catholic School Inc. Were the respondents was asked on some reliable information on how the Enrolment System was being process and detail of the data flow.
In order to get the goal in this study the researchers must get the availability and reliability of the data or in the formation. We gathered data through and interview, research on some computers books, direct observation on how the data had been workout.
Identifying Software For The Research Study
The software is imperative in making computerized system. These requirements are necessary in order to have good relation of a system. It is better to use software that is cheaper but with quality performance in learning access data, and instructions. There searchers had selected the Visual Basic 6.0 as the host language and the Microsoft access as its databases for the development or for the computerization of the Enrolment system. The selection of software was initially based on the availability of a familiarity of the researchers with the particular software.
The data gathered needed for these studies are encoded, the spacing, the alignment that sizes of text were carefully considered and also the wording are thoroughly checked, in order to have a clear and comprehensive output.
This program must be tested not only once but several times, and the performance of the hardware was also tested. So it can process bulk of data.

The first step encompassed the tasks that go into determining the needs or conditions to meet for a new or altered product, taking account of the possibly conflicting requirements of the various stakeholders, such as beneficiaries or users. This step was critical to the success of the development project.
The requirements must be actionable, measurable, testable, related to identified needs or opportunities, and defined to a level of detail sufficient for system design. The analysis of the data, which have been gathered in the earlier part of the study.
This part serves the essential explanation of the details above the data. The researcher are required a thorough investigation of the primary aspect, such as the books, internet or even the school need for the researcher, to satisfy the said study.
The methodologies that researchers applied the comprehensive formulation of solution to the problem, the measure in dealing with the objectives of the study and finally the interpretation of the result. This includes the presentation of the data that were purposely gathered then analyze and interpreted, in answer to the sub problems of this study.
The researcher created the system with the used of visual basic 6.0 provided easy access to relational features for user a raw power for developers. It was quiet simply the fastest management system on desktop, and its combination of easy to use powerful tools. Here are the uses of researcher.
-The use of consistent Design
– Pure Visual basic coding
– Unique Design
Data the Terms information and knowledge is frequently used for overlapping concept. The main difference is in the level of abstraction being considered. Data is the lowest level of abstraction, information is the next level, and finally, knowledge is the highest.
The analytical tools used in conducting the proposed study are the System flowchart,IPO (Input Process Output) and HIPO (Hierarchical Input-Process-Output), which are precisely discussed in this section for the development of the system.
It is formalized graphic representation of a program logic sequence, work or manufacturing process, organizing chart, or similar formalized structure.
IPO Or The Input Process Output
These are the components or elements that make up the system. It is also described as tools on the design of the entire software.
Hipo Or Hierarchical Input-Process-Output
A high-level view of the functions performed by a system as its functions and software implementation.
Data Flow Diagram
This is a graphic illustration that shows the flow of data andlogic within the system.
. This is an overview of the organizational system that shows the system boundary, external entities that interact with the system, and the major information flows between the entities and the system.
Design is a visualization of the outcome of a product but then in software design phase, time is very essential because designing software is not an overnight job. It takes a long period of time to ensure efficiency, maintainability and reliability if the software. Software design is a process of problem-solving and planning for a software solution.
After the purpose and specifications of software are determined, software developers will design or employ designers to develop a plan for a solution. It includes low-level component and algorithm implementation issues as well as the architectural view. The proponents considered different aspects in the design of the semi-automated enrollment system.
Each aspect must reflect the goals that the proponents were trying to achieve. Some of the aspects that the proponents incorporated in their study are the following: compatibility, extensibility, fault-tolerance, maintainability, reliability, reusability, and usability. For the design of the software, the proponents also used data flow diagram and entity relationship diagram along with normalization.
Software Implementation Plan
The phase of the software development method where software has already been debugged documented and tested. The objective of the implementation phase is to deliver completely functioning and documented information system. Implementation plan is the process of writing, testing, debugging/troubleshooting, and maintaining the source code of computer programs. This source code is written in programming language. The purpose of programming is to create a program that exhibits ascertain desired behavior.
Coding requires expertise in many different subjects, including knowledge of the application domain, specialized algorithms and formal logic. The proponents used VISUAL BASIC 6.0 for the coding and the interface, and for the system to be available, the proponents made it to Microsoft Visual Basic 10.0. Upon being made, errors were expected to emerge since the codes must also be compatible with the software that the well be used to supports, further debugging was done until there are no errors found.
A stage or phase where the proposed system will be given to a panel of critics and end-users for testing. In this way, the developer can determine the response of the userwhether the system works or not.
Software testing is an empirical investigation conducted to provide the company with information about the quality of the product or service under test, with respect to the context in which it is intended to operate. It also provides an objective, independent view of the software to allow the business to appreciate and understand the risks at implementation of
The software. Test techniques include the process of executing a program or application with the intent of finding software bugs. It can also be the process of validating and verifying that the system meets the requirements that guided its design and development.
Software deployment is all of the activities that make a software system available for use. The general deployment process consists of several interrelated activities with possible transitions between them. These activities can occur at the producer site or at the consumer site or both. Deployment should be interpreted as a general process that has to be customized according to specific requirements or characteristics.
When the system became available, both the institution and the proponents were able to evaluate how the system provided the needs of the institution and how the proponents were able to include the specified requirements to the system that they have developed.
