Short Message Service (SMS) is a text messaging service component of phone, web, or mobile communication systems, using standardized communications protocols that allow the exchange of short text messages between fixed line or mobile phone devices. SMS text messaging is the most widely used data application in the world, with 2. 4 billion active users, or 74% of all mobile phone subscribers. The term SMS is used as a synonym for all types of short text messaging as well as the user activity itself in many parts of the world. SMS is also being used as a form of direct marketing known as SMS marketing.
SMS as used on modern handsets was originated from radio telegraphy in radio memo pagers using standardized phone protocols and later defined as part of the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) series of standards in 1985 as a means of sending messages of up to 160 characters, to and from GSM mobile handsets. Since then, support for the service has expanded to include other mobile technologies such as ANSI, CDMA networks and Digital AMPS, as well as satellite and landline networks. Most SMS messages are mobile-to-mobile text messages through the standard supports other types of broadcast messaging as well.
Statement of the Problem Manual computation and Excel Based Computation is the most valuable system that fits the task of a professor or instructor in computing grades, however, there are variousproblems regarding the system (EXCEL) and the manual. This study entitled, “Automated Grading System with SMS Notification” seeks to answer the following questions: 1. What system can be developed or designed to improve the grading system distribution of ACLC College of Daet? 2. What problems are encountered by the instructors, parents and students in terms of grades? 3.
Is there any significance between the Existing grading systems to the proposed grading system? 4. What are the distinct features of the proposed system that assures effectiveness and efficiency? Hypotheses 1. Automated Grading System with SMS Notification may be developed and design to enhance the Grading System of ACLC College of Daet. 2. The instructors, parents and students are encountered some problems in terms of grades. 3. The Proposed grading system is more significance than the manual as follows: A. No using of papers and writing materials B. Rush hour submission of grades C.
A slow process of retrieving and releasing of records D. All the results gathered by teacher from the students grades has capable to enter efficiency and has a friendly used. 4. The proposed system may be developing with features that could reach the effectiveness of computing grades with its corresponding formulas and the distribution of grades through SMS. Scope and Limitation The scope of this study is primarily for the design and development of Grading System and efficient SMS grades distribution for each student in every grading period of ACLC College of Daet.
This involves computation of grades with its corresponding percentage, user can add student, search edit, save and delete entry. It automatically computes the standing of the students for attendance, quizzes, summative test, major exams, projects and ready for the user to print out and distribute student grade through SMS. This study is bounded with some limitations according to the boundary of this proposal entitle, “Automated Grading System with SMS Notification”. The scope of this proposed project is only: 1. Intended for the benefits of instructor, registrar, students and parents. . Focusing only in grades computation and distribution through SMS for Prelim, Midterm, Pre-Final and the most awaited is the Final. 3. The System could only be accessed by the authorized personnel in the Records section of the Registrars Office, secured with password. 4. The efficiency and effectiveness of the project is depending on the performance of the user and the SMS provider. Significance of the study This study may benefit the following persons: Students. They will be able to know their grades immediately. Parents.
The parents or guardian could easily know the performance of their students in school. Teachers. They will lessen their time and effort for computing of grade and help them perform their task in computing and calculating grades and it will also improve accuracy of calculations thus making the what we call “Hula of Grades” will become non-existent in the future of ACLC College of Daet. And the delayed passing of grades will be prevented and will be processed in a speedy way. Registrar’s Personnel. They can easily informed students with failing grades.
Future Researcher. This study will assist them for their research related to this study and will serve as references. Chapter II Procedure in Existing System This study shows how the existing system works as follows: 1. The instructors has their own class records, the contents of that are: A. The sorted name of the students per block B. The attendance list, quizzes and major exam and at the last the total grade either Prelim, Midterm or else. 2. Then the instructors transfer it to Excel and make the grade sheet according to its format. . After transferring all student data they will submit the hard copy to the registrar for recording purposes and grades distribution. Analysis of the Existing System The researcher gathered information through interviewing the instructors and other concern either formal or informal manner. The researcher discovered disadvantages and advantages of the proposed system but the majority of the respondents agreed and recommends the proposed project in order to improve the grading system and the gradesdistribution of ACLC College of Daet.
