CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Grading System is an exercise in professional judgment on thepart of the teachers. It involves the collection and evaluation of 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.
Online Grading System is a web-based application that can be used to create report cards, class grade list and roll sheet attendance report. It post the grades of the students online.The student have an account to access their report card. Parents can view and be updated on the performance of their children. While teachers work load can be lessen through computing the grades automatically. Nueva Vizcaya State University, Laboratory High School, Bayombong Campus, Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, has 380 students and 18 faculties.
They are liken to other schools who normally release the students grade list and report cards in a delayed time because they compute it using Microsoft Excel electronic spreadsheet and then manually compute the students grades list to double check.Thus resulting for the students to waste time and effort in always going back to school just to get their report cards. In some instances, students are not showing nor updating their parents concerning their performance in school.
There are times that students are forging the signature of their parents just to assure their teachers that they have showed it to their parents. In the part of the teachers, they are always put more time in computing the grades of the students because they manually compute it then check on the Microsoft Excel electronic spreadsheet to double check.For the parents they have been depraved in knowing the performance of their children because they need to go to work for living. As technology prevails in this epoch of time. We have in mind to solve the problem stated above. We are proposing a system entitled, Online Grading System of Nueva Vizcaya State University, Laboratory High School, Bayombong Campus, Bayombong Nueva Vizcaya.
This project examines the issued related ot the traditional grading system versus the online grading system. The online grading system would create a system of reliable and accurate to compute grades in all different subjects in theBasic Education Department. A comparatively fast access of the information of grades: generate reports and information of the input of teachers. This will be designed through web-based application with the use of MySQL as database management with the intent to generate reports. It helps the teachers to minimize the time consumed in computing grades of the students using manual method. This helps students to become aware of their grades and also help the parents to get involved in their child’s schooling.
Parents and students can work together to help a child succeed.Through conducting this study we are hoping to help in the problem of schools, parents and students. STATEMENT OF OBJECTIVES General Objectives This study aims to design and to develop an Online Grading System for the Nueva Vizcaya State University, Laboratory High School, Bayombong Campus, Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, that will serve as proposal to help teachers and students to save time and resources through the use of technology. Specific Objectives •To help the school in generating the report cards of the students through online. •To provide to the parents the necessary information and update concerning their children’s performance. To help the teachers update the grade automatically.
•To provide to the students the fast access of their report cards through viewing their grades online. SCOPE AND DELIMITATION This study is focused on the students and of Nueva Vizcaya State University, Laboratory High School, Bayombong Campus, Bayomobong, Nueva Vizcaya. It will concentrate on the Online Grading System and the proposed system will include computing, adding, searching, recording, editing, printing and retrieval of students’ grades of the Nueva Vizcaya State University, Laboratory High School.It is deliminated only to the students parents and faculty of the Nueva Vizcaya State University, Laboratory High School. This study does not cover the other department or branches of the school.
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY This study “ A Proposed Online Grading System of Nueva Vizcaya StateUniversity, Laboratory High School, Bayombong Campus will be beneficial to the following: To the School. This study will give benefits to the school as it helps them to post the grades and update the students concerning the student matters and school activities online. To the Students.It will help the students to save time and resources in getting their report cards. To the Instructors. This will serve as their guide in updating the grades of their student online. To the Researchers. This study will equip them with knowledge about an Online Grading System and to apply what they have learned in their course.
To the Future Researchers. This study will serve as their reference for their research activities and will help them to gain knowledge to express their ideas in their chosen study. Definition of Terms The following are terms that the researcher used for better understanding about the concepts in the study.Application- also known as an application or an “app”, is computer software designed to help the user to perform singular or multiple related specific tasks. Database – is an organized collection of data for one or more purposes, usually in digital form. Electronic Spreadsheet- It features calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications. In the study it is where instructors are going to make the grades of the students.
Grades – Grades are standardized measurements of varying levels of comprehension within a subject area.Instructor- the one who facilitates education for an individual student may also be described as a personal tutor. Online- In common usage, “online” often refers to the Internet or the World Wide Web. Report Card –it communicates a student’s performance. In most places, the report card is issued by the school to the student or the student’s parents twice or four times yearly Technology- is the making, usage and knowledge of tools, techniques, crafts, systems or methods of organization in order to solve a problem or serve some purpose. Update- update information concerning a specific matter.
