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.

Content of the proposed system was determined through interviews with the instructors, analyzing the subject and conceptual design, flow of the system were identified, review of the course outline, wysiwyg programs and course handouts. Programs and topics to be included in the system were selected. Using the WYSIWYG for creating and designing web page is very user friendly; you just drag and drop— until finished design will show.

A. Testing phase

This is the phase where student registration, create account, change account, student listing, submission of grades, grades inquiry was test. And occurred problems were identified.

B. Implementation and User feedback
C. The implementation of the system was done through intensive testing and user feedback gathering to ensure that the system runs to its purpose.

    The primary idea that necessitated the inception of this student online registration system was to ease the burden of students travelling long distances to the school offices which maybe several kilometers away. Lack of secure and well-coordinated record management was another challenge. Student information was manually recorded by the clerks and later stored in flat files inside a fire proof cabinet. Over time, the workload has increased tenfold. This is partly due to population increase of the students. As at now the total population of students stands as at 1000. Day-in-day-out the common scenario at the school administration offices can be clearly describe as…
