INTRODUCTION:

The grade of a student is a scale which determines students who need more improvement and require more assistance which will help teachers in guiding them towards their development.

Knowing grades especially at the end of the semester is the most awaited and most important part of individual student because it’s a way of measuring he’s/her performance whether he or she passes the subject or not. Unfortunately, the most common problem encountered by these students is the delay in releasing their grades. Of course, there are many factors affecting the delay of releasing their grades. First, this is e due to the manual procedure in releasing the grades of the students. Secondly, automated grading system is present but it is designed locally and lastly, Professors are not uploading their grades to the system on time. Remember that we in Higher Education are mandated to improve efficiency in the delivery of services to our clientele. It is the obligation of the school or university to release the grades of the students immediately.
