THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology- Municipal Government of Talavera is an educational institution that operates on a semestral basis. Every semester, students have to take midterm and final examinations along with quizzes, assignments, term papers and other academic performances. Teachers will compute and submit grade reports of students for release.
In this regard, most students are very eager to see their grades for some reasons. However, students are encountering problems regarding the process of the releasing of their grades. The currently available facilities in the university include the certification of grade report service provided by the NEUST-MGT Registrar. Since there is only one employee who does the entire task, students will be given a specific date or time of the release of their grades that is why students will not be able to get their grades immediately. With all these concerns about the existing facilities, the proponents decided to develop an automated grade verification system.
This study will focus on designing and developing an Automated Grade Verification System (AGVS) which wants to enhance the process and flow of the old system.
Background of the Study
The development of the system changed the way society accesses and processes information. It is acknowledge that automated system can update and monitor information much easier compared to the manual system. The Registrar as well as the students of NEUST-MGT wants to upgrade their manual system into automated system. The Registrar spends a lot of time in storing, retrieving and updating students’ grades. For these reasons, it is hard for the students to their grades released immediately. As far as lack in automated system is concerned and in order for the NEUST-MGT, Talavera Campus to be part of today’s increasingly fast-paced world, this study entitled automated grade verification system (AGVS) was conducted.
