A software application for the processing of students results

EO Ukem, EO Onoyom-Ita

Abstract


The processing of students’ results is found to be rather tedious, especially when carried out manually, and when the number of students is large. It is time-consuming and error prone. The process becomes a lot easier and
much more accurate when automated, because the computer is capable of accepting and storing raw data, processing it, and storing the results until needed. In this work, a computer software application was developed to
facilitate the automated processing of the results. The software was developed using the Waterfall Software Life Cycle model. It was designed in the form of a database capable of running on a network. It has four sessions, namely, the Super Administrator, the Staff/Administrator, the Staff, and the Guest. Software tools employed included MYSQL Relationship Database Management System, Dreamweaver Integrated Development Environment, PHP, and JavaScript. When tested, the developed software worked well and produced expected results. Screenshots of some of the outputs are included here.
