Grading System Database Model and Design

This article will give you an idea and example on the different tables involved in the development of a grading system.

General Objectives

This study aims to improve the manual submission of grades to the Registrar’s office and as well as to allow the students to view their grades. The proposed Grading System will be secured and reliable in keeping the records. It will also minimize the workloads will be fast and convenient.

Grading System Database Model and Design

Specific Objectives

The main purpose of the study is to:

  1. Provide a computerized record keeping of grades of students
  2. Provide a feature that could easily search and locate the college students’ grades
  3. Provide data security.
  4. Provide an automated system that will let the student easily access their grades by using their school I.D. via Barcode.
