CHAPTER 1

THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

Today, many colleges and universities still use automated system in daily life. But there are so many schools are still using manual system. Grading System is the most commonly used in computing and analyzing the performance, talents and skills of the 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. Grading System for Data Accuracy will help a lot in the part of teachers, school, administration and as well as the security of data of students.

The proponents attempt to develop a Grading System that may eliminate the word “manual”. Another feature is the automatic importing of grades from the instructor’s class record and printing it in different forms, unlike the current system wherein they need to write everything and present everything in person. However, this

Proposed system can give us more data accuracy and speed up time not only for the students but also for the instructors. Another capability of the proposed system is storing and accessing old data.

1. Background of the Study

St. John Technological College of the Philippines Grading System today is processed manually, it causes the instructors doing heavy task of computing grades every grading period. The manual Grading System in St. John slows down the processing and delaying submission of grades as well as the security of data of the students has not been defined in manual system .The computerized grading system will benefit the school and help the students to view their grades every examination period . The rapid advancement of computers in our society has made our daily workloads easier and more accurate. With its vast development, we need to set ourselves in its change and go with its flow. It had changed the views of many people to shift or after their way of doing their task from a manual system to a more detailed computerized system. 

Many of us in the institution are already familiar with the services provided by the school. The proposed system is designed to prevent delaying of submission of grades.

2. Theoretical Framework / Conceptual Framework

1. Conceptual Framework

Figure 1. Existing Grading System Diagram

Input Process Output

In figure 1 presented above shows the Manual Scheme of Grading System of St. John Technological works for computing grades.

The manual process is where the instructor input the Student number, name and Minor/major Lecture subjects. In this case, instructor need more time in checking out the information needed by the students to compute their grades and also double check their computations. Because of that, the manual system is time consuming and not organize keeping of records.

Figure 2. Proposed Computerized Grading System Diagram

Input Process Output

The above figure shows how the proposed Computerized Grading System works for computing grades.

The proposed system have the same inputs but different in process. No need to write down one grade per class card instead the system will print out grades of each student. The proposed system will give both students and instructors convenience in getting and submitting grades respectively. This process will avoid wasting of time especially for the instructors

2. Theoretical Framework

Most teachers know the difficulties of evaluating and grading student papers. The task is so large that some teachers do little of it. Even those teachers who regularly assigned papers know they cannot do justice to students...
