1.1 Statement of the Problem
STI College Koronadal is an institution that provides Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) programs like Hotel and Restaurant (HRS), Programming NCIV, Commercial Cooking NCII, Food and Beverage Services NCII and Commission on Higher Education programs like Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Bachelor of Science in Office Administration, and Associate in Computer Technology. It has an Omega System that used for enrollment and grading management. In essence, computing grades is an exercise in professional judgment on the part of the instructors. It involves the collection and evaluation and evidence of students' achievement or performance over a specified period of time in an academic semester, or the entire school year. Through this process, various types of descriptive information and measures of students' performance are converted into grades or marks that summarize students' accomplishments and academic standing in each semester. Moreover, STI College Koronadal uses MS Excel Spreadsheet for computing the grades. However, Excel is incapable of collecting all the records of each student and their classes. Thus results in the difficulty of giving summary of the students’ current status on their entire subject unless all of the individual records of each instructor per subject were reviewed. With this, the proponents decided to develop the STI College Koronadal Integrated E-Management System (STIKIES) to help the school to exercise the new technology in professional judgment on the part of the teachers. It will help to collect and evaluate the evidence on students’ achievement or performance over a specified period of time. Through this process various types of descriptive information and measures of students’ performance are converted into grades that summarize students’ accomplishments.
1.2 Current State of the Technology
STI College Koronadal used the MS Excel to compute the grades of the student. However, it cannot generate reports that will help the school in academic decision making. The designed spreadsheet is limited only for the computation of the grades of the student in every periodic term (Prelim, Midterm, Pre-Final, and Final). It cannot be used as a source to know the following reports: a.) Student academic standing
b.) Dean’s List
c.) Summary of student attendance in every course
d.) Complete Summary of grades (1st to 4th year)
e.) Master List of student every course
STI College Koronadal, although eminent for high-technology facilities, has a manual grades viewing and distribution system. It is manual in the manner that the hard copy of their semester grades is given to them every end of the semester. Before gaining access to their grades, they have to be in a line and wait for minutes or hours before they will be served.
1.3.1 General Objective
To develop the STI College Koronadal Integrated E-Management System (STIKIES) that will compensate all the reports needed for the school academic decision making.
1.3.2 Specific Objectives
1. To develop an online system that will change the MS Excel format in solving the grades of the student. 2. To develop an online system that will help the school in generating student summary of absences in each subject. 3. To develop an online system that will help the school in knowing the academic standing of each student per semester. 4. To develop an online system that will give a grade summary to the students. 5. To develop an online system that will generates the Dean’s List report in each semester.
1.3.3 Scope and Limitation
STI College Koronadal Integrated E-Management System (STIKIES) focuses only in generating reports such as: 1. Student academic standing
2. Dean’s List
3. Summary of student attendance in every course
4. Complete Summary of...
