The school is having problems in transferring grades from one grade sheet to another. Re-checking and re-encoding grades takes some time. The proponent attempts to design and develop an automated grading system which it has the same process and flow as the old system. However the proposed system has eliminated manual writing and the school staff can prevent time and energy consumption by using a system that guarantees accurate grade recording. It will also eliminate tons of papers used in computerized grading sheet, grading sheet per quarter, and summary sheet.
The grade will directly encode in the system. Visual Foxpro is used as a tool for programming the functionalities of forms, buttons, menus, and encoding of grades. CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Grading System is the most commonly used in computing and analyzing the performance, talent and skills of students. It is the important record to keep even for the longest time for the referral and credentials of the student to enter their next level of attaining their goals.
It is the tract record that recognizes of one student, this maybe use for analyzing of your attitude and values.
Based on our research, the school of Golden Valley – Newland Group of Schools grades of each student, which is the traditional use when technology is not yet developed. Manual computation is very prompt to risk for any circumstances. It is time consuming in terms of recording grades, computation using of calculator. If some records are lost, they never retrieve it in case of unexpected calamity. Accuracy and security is not been so defined in their manual system. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM 1. The computerized grading system is more significant than the manual as follows: a.
No using of paper and pencil. b. Rush hour submission of grades. c. A slow process of retrieving and releasing of records. 2. All the results from the gathered by teacher from the students grades has capable to enter efficiency and has a friendly used. 3. The teacher will lessen their time and effort for computing of grades. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY General Objectives This study will help the Faculty and staffs of Golden Valley – Newland Group of Schools computing grades easy by the help of the systematized grading system for the students.
The database system will make the grading and collection of grades for the high school students easy and fast. The grading system will store the data and grades of the student. This includes the name of the student, section, subjects, and grades Specific Objectives In order to meet the requirements of the general objective, the following specific objectives were formulated: 1. To develop an automated grading system that can provide information for the entire department; 2. To provide a better, easier and fastest way of computing grades; 3. To develop and accurate, reliable, and more upgraded grading system; and 4.
To enhance the researchers’ knowledge and entrepreneurial skills as well in making this study. SCOPE AND LIMITATIONS This study aim to develop a grading system for Golden Valley – Newland Group of Schools, the data base limits on the following fields and functions: * It limits to store the grades of every subject of the student (First Quarter, Second Quarter, Third Quarter, Fourth Quarter) * It limits only for the records of student grades. * Only Authorized personnel will be allowed to use the system. (Dean and some authorized faculty/staff authorized by the dean to collect)
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY This research study is vital and advantageous for the following: * Registrar and Accounting Office With regards to the registrar’s office the proposed system will help the school maintain the information and data of the students and they will not use the manual gathering of data anymore. The school will just check to the database for the records needed. * The Teachers The teachers will benefit by means of not having a hard time in waiting for their turn to register, compute the student’s grades, and to view the records faster and organized.

CHAPTER II REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATUE The researchers made a diligent and conscientious effort to gather pertinent information and data from different sources in their intention to bring out the most essential ones, which are relevant to this subject matter. The information and data were gathered primarily from the teachers and students of different colleges/universities, websites, books, newspaper, and other literature. Foreign Literature * Stephen McHenry in Iterative Implementation Strategy There is another implementation approach that eliminates problems of using a waterfall study.
It is known as the Iterative Implementation/Continuous Integration Approach. This is also known as Design/Implementation Increments. In fact, issues come out that by using Iterative Implement, Waterfall Method was remove totally in industry of studies. This was invented to avoid a linear and sequential development of study unlike the Waterfall Study. With this approach, the overall functionality of the system is broken down into feature sets. These feature sets, often based upon use cases from the analysis stage, contain a group of individual features that are related, typically by functional area.
In most cases, the entire set of features required to support a functional area will be too large to be considered a single feature set, and must be further divided to reduce the size * Long Beach City College Southern California community college Long Beach City College has gone live with a new Cognos-based grading system that was designed by Irvine, CA-based professional services firm e2e Analytix. Prior to installing the new system, LBCC, which has two main campuses and multiple satellites that support nine schools and 34 departments, handled its grading via manual spreadsheets.
LBCC tapped e2e Analytix, which specializes in higher education, to design a web- based grading system using Cognos Enterprise Planning software from Cognos Inc. (Ottawa, Ontario). Using Cognos for grading system was a unique application for Cognos, according to Dan Galuppo, a director of professional services, but the result delivers real-time data collection, consolidation, workflow, and calculation of grades to help LBCC staff make faster and more informed decisions. Local Literature * Ace Adrian Sandoval Grading System is useful especially when the school retrieves the grades of the student.
The school can trace what is the standing of the students. Lack of Automated Grading System in a school can lead to chaos and troubles. Faculty/Staffs will be confused on what they should do to be able to compute grades. It is extremely useful in the school in the way of working processes of computing grades of the student become much easy. * Samar State University Technology innovations had influenced man’s work, from data processing, business transactions, research, planning, monitoring and even in medical operation of man’s body is now entrusted to computer technology.
Samar State University (SSU) as one of the University in Samar Island aims to be the center of excellence in education had recently made changes to some of its existing systems. The grading system of the university is now computerized, and other systems are on its way. This only show that they are coping with the latest technology. The Automated Grading System of Samar State University aims for an accurate, user friendly, efficient system that can help both the student and personnel for fast data processing of computation of grades. Engr. Hediki Hashimoto, a Japanese volunteer headed the creation and conceptualization of the system.
The information technology faculty from the College of Engineering and Arts and Sciences assisted him. The system that is web based uses PHP programming language with data stored in MySQL is run through the intranet of SSU. A dry-run for this automated grading was done last summer and the first semester of this school year. Offices affected with the automation were the registrar, 17 cashier, accounting, and the Colleges of Education, Engineering, Arts and Sciences, Industrial Technology, Nursing and Graduate Studies. Feedbacks from the students were formulated when the first semester started.
Over 75 % of them say that the automation process of grading was better compared with the old system. With the good result of the dry run the automated grading system will be finally implemented this 2nd semester. CHAPTER III METHODOLOGY Like the other System, this System used a descriptive method of research and studies for Automated Grading System. Those methods are analysis, design, coding, testing, and observation. Software Engineering Analysis The group conducted an interview to the company to have copies of necessary documents in gathering data to build an Automated Grading system.
Consultations are conducted to help build this Automated Grading system. Software Requirement Analysis The software or language used in this Automated Grading system is Visual Foxpro 6. 0 and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended. Design This Automated Grading system contains the full proposed grading system. Coding The coding of the system utilizes Visual Foxpro 6. 0 Language. Testing The school’s maintenance administrator will test the system. Observation This instrument was used in analyzing the existing system. The proponent observed and noted the flow of work in the existing system.
The researcher then used it to identify where problems are commonly encountered. The proponent would use the observations to suggest a better and effective system. Data Gathering The researchers asked permission form the principles of the chosen schools through the recommendation of the teacher. CHAPTER IV PRESENTATION, ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION OF THE SYSTEM Data Flow Diagram (DFD) This method is a graphical representation of the “flow” of data through an information system. DFDs can also be used for the visualization of data processing (structured design) of the enrolment system. Context Diagram A Context Diagram is a diagram that represents the actors outside a system that could interact with that system. It also shows the system boundaries, external entities that interact with the system, and the relevant information flows between these external entities and the system. See the illustration in Figure 1 below. * Exploded Diagram An Exploded Diagram is an illustration in which all the elements of an assembly are slightly separated from each other, enabling each element to be viewed independently. See the illustration in Figure 2 below. Visual Table of Content (VTOC)
