A Competence-Based Recruitment System Using Mean Deviation
Bridget Chinalu Ujah-Ogbuagu

The backbone of every establishment or institution is the quality of its staff. The success of establishments depends to a large extent on the caliber of their staff. Many establishments have suffered the effect of recruiting staff members who are certificate qualified but not competent in the job. It is therefore very important for establishments to make sure that applicants are thoroughly screened to ensure that they are both certificate qualified and competent for the job they are applying. The paper uses a 3-phase verification procedure to ensure that applicants who are recommended for interview for a job are qualified and competent. The 3-phase approach uses mean deviation to check the dispersion between Performance on Curriculum Vitae Test (PCVT) score and Computer Aptitude Test (CAT) score for each applicant. If the dispersion is considered to be too wide, the applicant is disqualified. Also, if an applicant’s mean score is less than the entire population mean score, the applicant is disqualified. A website is developed as a platform for the 3-phase verification procedure. MySQL, Ajax, Java, PHP and HTML web tools were employed in the development of the competence-based recruitment system and its interface.

A Study of ICT Competence Among Nigerian Academic Staff in Monotechnics
Aisha Awal, Amit Mishra, Elijah Joseph and Jamilu Mai Pan Uku

Today’s fast-paced world is becoming increasingly characterized by technology-driven communication, which has transformed the world into a large globally connected community with ever-increasing outreach of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Technology plays an increasingly important role in people’s lives, and it is envisaged that technological literacy will soon become a functional requirement for people’s work, social and even personal lives. For both social and economic reasons, staff will need computer and communication technology skills if they are to live successfully in a knowledge-based society. The paper examines the ICT usage habits and the self-assessed ICT competencies possessed by staff of monotechnics and polytechnics. A second important issue that was addressed was whether there were significant differences in the perceived ICT competency among staff according to the demographic and study-related factors.
