Task Summary
Based on the case scenario provided, (1) developing a collection of spreadsheets on a file system to manage a business process, (2) identifying and discussing the problems of using a collection of spreadsheets on a file system, (3) discussing the benefits of using a database system and (4) drawing an ERD and developing a database table design for the information system proposed in the case.
Context
This assessment aims to develop your understanding of the challenges involved in collecting, storing and managing data in an organisational context. It assesses your ability to effectively identify the benefits of a database system as well as your ability to build data models to simplify complex subject matters.
Task Instructions
1. Please read the attached MIS201_Assessment 1_Case Scenario.
2. Based on the case scenario provided, please complete the following tasks:
Task 1 (10 marks)
Design and create as many Microsoft Excel spreadsheets as you deem necessary to manage and store academic misconduct cases as detailed in the case scenario. Note one Microsoft Excel file may contain many spreadsheets.
Task 2 (50 marks)
A collection of spreadsheets created by the Academic Integrity Officers shared on a network drive may experience many problems. Identify and discuss the problems with examples related to the case scenario with respect to data redundancy, data independence, data consistency, data integrity, data security and the scale of data sharing.
Also, discuss whether — and if so how — a database system could solve most of the problems that a collection of spreadsheets on a file system would encounter. Please note that your response to this task should be 1200 words +/-10%.
You do not need to use a Report format for your answer. Use headings (e.g. Data redundancy, Data independence, Advantages of a database system) to structure your answer.
Task 3 (25 marks)
The University Management decides to develop an information system (the ‘System’) to process the large number of academic misconduct cases, and you have been asked to design the database for the System. The System shall facilitate the management of academic misconduct cases and shall generate reports for the Academic Board or other academic governance committees. Draw an Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) to model the data that would be used in the System given the case scenario above.
Task 4 (15 marks)
Based on the ERD you completed in the previous task, design database tables for the System. Provide the following information for each database table. Please note that ERD must be drawn using LucidChart or an equivalent professional diagramming software package.
