FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATION


Findings
The researcher was able to develop a computer based Anastrophe Christian
School Grading System and cope up with the following findings:
1. There were problems met in the current system in terms of the following:
a. In saving and updating students grades
The Anastrophe Christian School used the paper-based or the manual way
of collecting data. Certain data collected such as the criteria scores is written
in a class record. Their files of student information were kept in a filing
cabinet and it was not well organized and is also prone to lose. In terms of
updating a certain record of a certain student, the teacher looked at the file
cabinet and searched the students record. The teacher modified or updated the
record and returned it to the file cabinet. Therefore, it takes time from
recording certain information until placing the record on the filing cabinet.
b. In retrieving students grades
The teacher asked some key information from the student like student ID
number and name as basis in looking for the record of the student from the
filing cabinet at the principals office. This manual way of searching and
viewing to update and retrieve students record consumed much time and
effort on the part of the teacher. The process costs much time and effort.

c. In generation Form 138


The Anastrophe Christian School used the paper-based and the manual
way of generating students report like the Form 138. Every quarter, the
subject teacher submitted the grades of the student to the adviser and then
validated at the Principals Office. Thus, the adviser recorded the grades on
their Form 138. The cycle continued until the end of the quarter. At the end of
the school year, the Form 138 was kept on a filing cabinet at the principals
office. The way that the school generates consumed much time and effort in
the part of the teacher. The teacher must then present the said report for
confirmation.
2. Security measures
The log-in form enables the registered user to view and operate the
system. In order to view and operate the system, the registered user must enter the
right username and password. If the user enters a wrong username and a wrong
password three times, an error message appears and the system would
automatically exit. If the username and password is confirmed and valid, the
system is accessed and the level of accessibility depends on the type of the user. A
user log is included on the system which is used to track the activities of the users.
3. Economic Feasibility
Based on the summary of the Cost Benefit Analysis and Break-even
Analysis, the Break-even point of the proposed system occurs within three years,
specifically in 1.19 years.
4. Evaluation of the proposed system
The proposed system was evaluated 4.97 with a descriptive rating of
Excellent by the Chairman, members of the Defense Panel as well as the end
users. The following criteria were used to evaluate the system: Reliability, UserFriendliness, Usefulness and Completeness.

78

Conclusions
Based on the findings the researcher concluded that:
1. There are problems met on the current grading system used by the Anastrophe
Christian School and broken down as follows: In saving and updating students grades; In
retrieving students grade; and In generation of Form 138.
2. The Automated Grading System of Anastrophe Christian School is a solution to
ease the processes of saving, retrieving and updating students grades as well as the
generation of reports.
3. The log in process of the automated system prevents unauthorized access and
monitors user activities.
4. The Cost Benefit Analysis showed that the break-even point of the proposed
system occurs within a year, specifically in 1.19 years. It is concluded then, that the
system is economically feasible.
5. The proposed system is evaluated by the Chairman, members of the Defense
Panel as well as the end users with a descriptive rating of Excellent as supported by the
mean rating of 4.97 and indicates that the proposed system is technically and functionally
feasible, thus it meets the expectation of the end-user.
Recommendations
Based on the conclusions, the following recommendations are recommended:
1. The implementation of the Automated Grading System for the Anastrophe
Christian School should be done to give solutions to the problems met in their current
system and to have an accurate records on student grades as well as easy generation of
Form 138.
2. The end users must undergo training/briefing for them to be familiarized with
the operations and use of the computerized system.
3. There should be personnel in charge of maintaining the Automated Grading
System and a good back up habit is recommended.

79

4. For further study, the researcher recommends an archive system in which


records filed in the filing cabinet is being scanned and stored in a database that is
constantly backed up.
5. The researcher also recommends an upgrade on the computer system of the
school for faster operation of the automated system.
