ABSTRACT

Online Grade Submission and Inquiry System has now become a part of our institution. Time to time Grade submission and inquiry online will contribute considerable aspects. Online users should be registered first to create their individual accounts for submission and inquiry. The registrar, teachers and students will have their user name and password. They will use their own password for privacy as well as to recognize individuals and at the same time they can be able to submit, for teachers, inquire grades, for registrar and students. This system holds multiple accounts that can be use at the same time, anytime, anywhere online. All users of the system will be able to change their own user names as well as their passwords any time without losing any records. This system is an instrument that allows teachers to list students, who enrolled to his/her subject, add, delete and submit their grades. By the use of our grades evaluator made from MS Excel, solving grades will be more easy and fast.

KEY WORDS: Online, Inquiry,

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

A lot of parents are neither aware nor updated on their child’s performance in school; they did not know the grades that their child had received. Usually, students do not want to show their grades to their parents or their parents live in a distance place that is why they do not have the chance to show their grades even if they like to do so. These are the main reason why we had created this project. Base on our research, nowadays, universities like FEU, DLSU, AdU, UST, UPHS and ADMU use Online Grade inquiry , they had a common objective and those are: For the parents to be updated on their child’s performance and to avoid children bluffs about their grades. It is not good to hear, but that is the reality. The ONLINE GRADE SUBMISSION AND INQUIRY SYSTEM that we had designed is easy to use that is why there is no reason for the parents to worry not to be able to use this just because they do not usually use computer and internet. The ONLINE GRADE SUBMISSION AND INQUIRY SYSTEM is an absolute system consists of a series of fields like The Registrar’s Account for Students registration, creating account and Changing Registrar’s account like password and inquiring how many students are registered. Teacher’s Account for creating their account, registering their students and submission of students grades. Lastly, it has Students fields in which the students will create their account to be able to inquire their grades. This system provides quality security assurance and fast processing way of inquiring grades most especially for the benefits in the part of the students. This system has its security measures to ensure the liability and legality of all data’s being put to the system.
