Electronic Recordkeeping and School Management Processes: A Case of Selected Secondary Schools in Luwero District.
The study sought to establish the relationship between electronic record keeping and school management processes: A case study of selected secondary schools in Luwero District. The objectives which guided the study were:i) To ascertain the level of e-record keeping usage in selected secondary schools in Luwero District; ii) To examine the management process in selected secondary schools in Luwero District; iii) To establish the relationship between e-record keeping and school management process in selected secondary schools in Luwero District.Methodologically, the study adopted a quantitative and qualitative approach with a correlational research design. Out of 1,000 total populations, 278 respondents were sampled of whom: 267teachers and 11 administrators were randomly and purposively selected and answered the questionnaire interviews. Data was analysed using SPSS version 21.From the study findings, there was a relationship between e-record keeping and school management processes. A chi-square test of significance 579.567/216=2.6831, taking the square of (2.6831)2 = 7.20 indicated that there was 72.0% positive significant relationship between e-record keeping and school management processes of p<.05. (P < 0.000, φ=1.473). The count showed that 98% expected counted was less than 5%. The minimum expected count was .01. The degree of impact as indicated by φ=1.473 implies that e-record keeping has a moderate effect on school management processes. The significant level of P<0.000 implies that school management process depends on e-record keeping and these variables are not independent of each other.The study concludes that there is low level of e-record keeping usage in the school management processes. However, if properly adopted, this can improve the admission process, the storing of students' and teachers' bio-data, examination records, attendance, administrative data, and financial record keeping. Also, it will enhance the management in planning, staffing, monitoring and controlling of management processes in schools.
