Even elections have gone automated. Applying automation to Grading systems wherein it will also make a task easy and accurate.

1.1 Background of the Study
The group’s system named “Automated Student Evaluation System” is effective on inputting and storing data. And the excellence and efficiency of this system is assured. The group has taken this opportunity as a challenge and pushed our ideas into reality and has considered many aspects and ideas in making this one of a kind project. The group hopes that the readers of this documentation would be inspired as they and believe that the primary goal of grading and reporting is communication.
