Flood induced health and food safety web information scoring tool

Ling, Yoke Ming (2011) Flood induced health and food safety web information scoring tool. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Computer Science and Information System.



Recently, flood occurs everywhere and it brings terrible effect towards human?s health. So, community need to have flood induced health and food safety (FIHFS) knowledge to protect themselves. But, FIHFS information is too comprehensive and scattered and often, community feels difficulties to find FHFS information they needed. The FIHFS information web scoring tool research studies have been proposed to solve this problem. Qualitative and quantitative method had been used in this research to find FIHFS knowledge from community. Document review method is used to find the FIHFS criteria based on the FIHFS knowledge from community. After that, content analysis method from website had been applied to extract FIHFS criteria. In order to validate reliable FIHFS content, a rubric is designed. The rubric in this research used to achieve higher level agreement of the website addresses after rubric validation process had been taken. In addition, rubric is used as reference for assessors evaluated the website address to found which contains relevant FIHFS information. A prototype of FIHFS web information scoring tool had been developed as one stop center website to combine the list of website addresses which contains relevant FIHFS information that serve as reliable reference for community. The useful FIHFS information can give convenient and awareness for community who are in need to make preparation and prevention of health and food safety problem due to flood.
