Project Title: Design, Efficiency Measurement and Comparative Analysis of a Dynamic Web User Interface
Semester: Spring 2006
Committe Chair: Dr. John D. Fernandez
Committee Member 1: Dr. David Thomas
Committee Member 2: Dr. Long-zhuang Li
Project Description: This project includes the design and implementation of an effective dynamic interface for the Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness (PIE) at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMU-CC). The PIE Website contains the results of various surveys conducted on campus and complete details of the students, their grades and other statistics. It also maintains details concerning faculty on campus. Unlike the current Website, new Dynamic PIE System computes the user specified options directly against the data and displays the results in a formatted pattern, thus making the user interface dynamic. There were several steps involved in achieving success. The first step was timing the tasks required to browse through the current PIE Website at different levels and to rate the user friendliness and efficiency by testing with TAMU-CC employees and volunteers. Based on the results obtained, in the second step a new dynamic Website was developed using ASP.Net and C# which give the user a wide range of choices to select the data and contents he wants to retrieve and review. The newly designed system can also generate reports by using Crystal Reports (a report generating tool), which gives well formatted reports as output. Step three involved comparing the new Website against the current Website and tabulating the results. The final product is an effective and user friendly dynamic Web user interface for PIE using ASP.Net and C# which includes a capability for generating formatted reports.
