    A web-based management and tracking system for university accreditation processes
    (2022-05) Mensah, Casey Kwesi
    This paper focuses on the design and implementation of a web-based accreditation management system to assist in managing Ashesi University's accreditation processes. It seeks to provide a detailed outline of the processes, decisions and outcomes involved in this project, as well as the motivation behind everything. Accreditation is a review process meant to evaluate educational programs to see if they fulfill certain quality standards. In Ghana, this review process is monitored and coordinated by the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission, GTEC. This process is required of every degree-awarding tertiary institution for the institution to remain in good educational standing. Accreditation in Ghana is usually carried out every 3 to 5 years.

    signWithMe: Intelligent learning system for inclusive learning of the Ghanaian Sign Language
    (2022-05) Abosi, Petra Mensah
    There are many Deaf people in the world, and in Ghana, there are many Deaf persons. However, there is a huge communication gap between the Deaf and hearing in the Ghanaian society, as there is inadequate teaching and learning of the Ghanaian Sign Language. In this project, the signWithMe application system seeks to address this problem by providing a Sign Language application system that consists of a Sign Language dictionary, a translator, an eresource, an e-forum and an e-payment system. It would educate people about the Deaf community to ensure diversity and inclusion in our society. This system will use web features, a payment and a chatbot Application Programming Interface (API).

    kNect: A computer assisted career guidance system for children in junior high schools in Ghana
    (2022-05) Asante, Princess Adwoa Nyinaku
    The current education system of Ghana is designed in such a way that recent graduates of Junior High Schools are required to choose only one track (Science, Business, General Arts, Visual Arts or Home Economics) to pursue in traditional Senior High Schools, regardless of whether or not they are sure of what kind of career they want to pursue. This decision determines the kind of courses they can pursue at University and ultimately affects their course options at University, limiting their possible career choices. In order to solve this problem, this project provides a platform for students to learn about more diverse career paths and interact with mentors in the careers they desire to pursue. The project also recommends good career paths to students based on their given skills and interests.

    Building a team-management and improved peer review platform for Ashesi University
    (2022-05) Obeng, Kwabena Koranteng; Woode, Tobias Ekow
    PEGAR is a platform designed to streamline team interactions in Ashesi, improve the authenticity of peer reviews and strengthen the credibility of team dynamic grading. The system development methodology used was the SCRUM method as the team dynamic and user input was a continuous iterative process. Regarding this project's scope, PEGAR is a team management and peer review platform intended for the use and progressive exploration within the Ashesi University academic scene. It complements educational team projects by focusing on the team element of the project and not the submissions and direct project grading. The core functionalities include but are not limited to an object team selection algorithm, team task management and a peer review section that generates tailored reviews according to the user and user type. This project resulted in an 80% user acceptance rate for the platform and the revised peer review format. Considering that the primary users are both Ashesi students and teaching faculty, this high acceptance rate is indicative of future development and integration into the Ashesi curriculum.

    DUPA university calendar system
    (2022-05) Anatsui, Richard Kafui
    The pandemic took everyone by surprise and disrupted the operations of many institutions worldwide. As a result, many institutions have been compelled to undertake their operations remotely. Completely relying on third-party applications to manage the internal operations of an institution could be detrimental to it during situations whereby their servers are compromised by cyberattacks and redundancy failure. The Academic Affairs Department of Ashesi University has expressed its need for an internal system to manage and organize all events and meetings planned for the institution. The DUPA University Calendar is going to be built to meet their needs.
