DESCRIPTION OF MANUAL SYSTEM OF COLLATING STUDENTS RESULTS
The existing system explains the manual ways of data collection which can be regarded as marks. Each subject teacher has a statutory duty of setting examination questions on his/her subjects and also mark the script without wasting time after the examination. The examination score takes 70% of the total scores and the continuous assessment takes the remaining 30% of the total aggregate. The individual teacher records the marks gotten by each student in a score sheet which in turn be copied into the report sheet that would be presented to the student. The report sheets are then submitted back to the class teacher in order to collate all the scores together to find the average mark of each student. The class teacher also integrates necessary and visual pieces of information such as number of days present and absent, total number of students in class, vacation and resumption date, etc.
The use of manual system to perform this process entails many problems such as:
The time that teachers usually spent on collating student results can be used on some other things that can enhance the academic standard and likewise improve the academy performance of students in the school.
To solve the aforementioned problems, a computerized system could be put in place to replace the manual system.
