Chinese Abstract

在台灣,每年的春天是研究所考試的季節。由於各校分別舉行考試,因此考生通常會報考多所學校來增加自己錄取的機會。放榜時,表現好的學生便會出現錄取超過一間學校的重榜情形。對於備取的考生來說,交叉查榜是一個非常重要的工作。目前已經有一些線上服務可以提供備取生線上查榜。但是這些現有的服務都有著一些共同的缺點像是版面設計不良以及無法提供備取生額外的協助。本研究基於現有服務的一些缺失,開發了一套更先進的交叉查榜服務--MyNext。MyNext提供了一個全新設計的查榜介面讓考生更容易使用。運用Facebook社群網路,MyNext可以讓考生更容易的與他們的朋友互相連結來取得查榜上面的協助。考生們和其他的使用者可以在MyNext上面交換意見、進行上榜預測、提供建議,備取生可以從這些資訊中來更加準確的推測上榜的機會。運用了集體智慧的精神,一些在現有系統難以解決的問題如考生同名問題,也可以藉由考生們的過濾來加以辨識。藉由與Facebook的整合及運用集體智慧的概念,考生們可以以合作的方式更有效率的交叉查榜,並且建立一個研究所考生的線上社群網路。

English Abstract

In Taiwan, graduate school entrance exams are conducted on Spring term each year and results are released shortly after the exams have finished. Students could thus browse the corresponding school websites for the releases. In recent years, some online cross-checking systems have been developed for one-stop checking. However, these systems are usually badly designed and they do no provide information on if a short-listed student will give up the offer. In this regard, we present in this paper an advanced cross-checking system called MyNext. MyNext provides three major functions. First, it provides an interface for a student to cross-check the lists. Second, by connecting with Facebook, an interface has been developed to let the students seeking advices from their friends. The interface allows their friends leaving comments and giving recommendations. This collective intelligence (combining comments, recommendations and other advices) would definitely be beneficial to a student on justifying how likely he/she will be admitted to the applied programs. Besides, friends can tell if the applied programs are really suitable for the student. Finally, owing to resolve the problem of two or more students with the same name, a simple function has been developed to let a student to cross out the programs he/she has not applied. In such case, the system could distinguish who is who on the list and thus make cross-checking more effective and reliable.
