Recommendation Page

San Miguel National High School use manual computing of grades that can
cause slow computation and issuance of grades to the students.
We do a system that can help faculty members to compile all the records of
the students and compute its average.
Faculty members handle more than one sections each year level so that they
encounter problems like misplace of exams of student.
It will ask the faculty member about the specific section of the students
and it will give all the lists of the students and they have the privileged to select
the specific student and enter the corresponding equivalent of the exams and
activities. It will lessen the problems like misplacing of records of the students.

Acknowledgements

First we would like to thank our professor, adviser and our chairperson Mrs.
Josephine Dela Isla for all the guidance and support throughout this research, without
her, this research will not be possible.
We would like to acknowledge our classmates by entertaining each and every
one while doing this research and most especially ourselves as Group 7, without our
cooperation and unity we cant finish this research on the deadline.
To the San Miguel National High School for allowing us to conduct this research
and trusting us by giving their information. We hope that this system will help you to
have reliable and fastest computation of grades.
Lastly, Our God who gave life, courage, strength and opportunity to us, without
him we will never experience all the blessings and challenges in life that help us to be
strong and learned different things in this world.

Objectives of the Study

To computerized a manual operation for a faster, reliable and accurate

operation.
To provide a computerized system that will give faster storing, retrieval

and computation of grades of each student.


To lessen the possibility of late issuance of grades due to problems

encounter by a faculty members while computing grades.


To provide accurate records of grades for each sections and students.

Scope and Delimitation

The scope of the study is about San Miguel National High School manual based
system of recording and computing of grades and the system that will change the
process and cycle of computing grades which the researcher made to help the school to
have faster, accurate and reliable system which is entitled Faculty and Grading System.
The study will provide computerized system allowing the faculty members, admin and
students to use the system. For faculty members that will use the system, they will be
given the right to encode grades of students and finalizing the average of student when
submission of grades. Instead of releasing card, this system may allow the students to
see their grades through this computerized system. And the admin will be given a role to
maintain the system.

1.2 Project Overview


There shall be four grading periods using the cumulative method. This means
that the grades for the second to fourth grading periods are computed based on the
30% - weight of the previous grade and the 70% weight of the tentative grade for the
quarter or grading period.

EXAMPLE:
Grade for the first grading period.................................
Tentative grade for the second grading period................

30% of 85
+ 70% of 87

85
87

= 25.50
= 60.90

_________________________
Computed grade

= 86.40

Therefore, the final rating for the second grading period is 86.

The numerical system of grading shall be used and grades shall be expressed in
multiple of one.
There shall be no maximum grade for any grading period. The lowest passing
grade in any given subject shall be 75%. The lowest grade (to appear in the report card)
that can be given to the student after transmutation of performance shall be 70.

The grade in each subject area shall be based on certain criteria weighed
accordingly as follows:

The composite grade for MAPEH shall be computed by getting the average of all
the components (Music, Arts, P.E., Health for first to third year or Music, Arts, P.E.,
Health and CAT for fourth year).
In case a student does not obtain a composite passing grade in MAPEH due to
failure or deficiency in any one of the component subjects, he/she shall be given a mark
of INCOMPLETE but shall be allowed to complete within the next grading period the
deficiency in the component which he/she failed.

The grade for MAKABAYAN shall be computed based on the percentage weights
of the component subjects.
EXAMPLE: (First to Third Years)

Similarly, the final rating in MAKABAYAN is 87%.


*Includes CAT

If the student incurs any failure, the grade in MAKABAYAN shall be


INCOMPLETE. Failure in any of the component subjects shall mean repeating the
subject which the student failed.
Promotion and Retention
Promotion shall be by subject and by number of units. In this case, a student who
fails in three (3 units or less is promoted to the next curriculum level. On the other hand,
a student who fails in more than three (3) units is retained in the year level. Under this
circumstance, the student shall only be required to repeat the subjects that he failed and
should be given advance subjects in the next curriculum level.

After teachers computed the grades they will submit it 10 days after Periodical
Test. And it will be reviewed by Department Heads per subject before the
issuance of grades to students.

Database design is the process of producing a detailed data model of
a database. This logical data model contains all the needed logical and physical design
choices and physical storage parameters needed to generate a design in a Data
Definition Language, which can then be used to create a database. A fully attributed
data model contains detailed attributes for each entity.
