NMP to implement computer-based assessment for seafarers

By Ninfa B Quirante

Tacloban City (21 October) -- The National Maritime Polytechnic (NMP) based here in Barangay Cabalawan, Tacloban City will soon be implementing the computer-based assessment system (CBAS) with its inauguration yesterday by no less than President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as the honored guest.

The establishment of the computer-based assessment system is aimed not only to ensure that the knowledge and skills required by trainees are consistent with the requirements necessary for certification under the 1978 Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW).

This also secures the scheme of assessment, according to the Officer in Charge Marie Grace Ayaso in an interview.

The system, she added, holds a data of questions for all NMP training courses which will be randomly extracted during the conduct of assessment and will electronically record the trainees' achievement.

This immediately computes and provide results.

The system is composed of 24 stations and an assessor's cubicle.

Part of the system are programs that will compute a trainee's final grade and generate the required reports.

The computer-based assessment system costs some P991,180.00.

Aside from this newly acquired technology, NMP also purchased a full-mission bridge simulator, full-mission engine-room simulator and liquid cargo handling simulator.

All these cost NMP some P 48.3 M from its capital outlay.

PGMA was here yesterday for the installation and commissioning of the state-of-the-art maritime training simulators and equipment.

NMP, established in 1978 prides itself being a world class maritime training center of excellence. (PIA-Samar) [top]
