Accreditation is the formal recognition of an educational program that possesses a high level of quality based on the analysis of the merits of its educational operations in attaining its objectives and its role in the community that it serves. Institutions in Higher Education (HEIs) play a very significant role in making a country to be competitive globally through the skilled human capital resources it produces. The function is intimidating as the institution has to regularly check itself

This is about investing in a considerable amount of resources to develop its faculty, research, and facilities. (Pacquaio et. Al; 2012)The study aimed to develop a Web-based Accreditation with Data Reporting and Visualization for Program Accreditation. The study was for the management and monitoring of the required documents in all areas of accreditation especially in the Computer Science Program by utilizing this system. This system would assist the users to monitor the progress of each area of accreditation effectively. It is controlled by the system administrator that can add and manage user accounts, programs, and content to the system. The people assigned can upload documents in PDF (Portable Document Format) or .pdf and exchange notes with each other.The system evaluation was based on the standard set by International Standardization Organization, the ISO 25010 which was used to evaluate software products. The variables that were needed to test the system were functional suitability, usability, security, compatibility, portability, and maintainability provided in the questionnaire which would establish the credibility of this research through the scientific approach used in statistical treatment which was later interpreted and analyzed to give findings.The system was assessed by the three groups of participants, the accreditation personnel, faculty members, and IT staff that yielded mostly "highly acceptable" and "acceptable responses on the features of the system. The proponent found that there was a significant difference between the evaluations of the three groups of participants by utilizing Analysis of Variance (ANOVA); thus the null hypothesis was rejected. These features and functionalities of the system were beneficial in accreditation and complied with the international standards of software product quality in the development of systems.
