Specific Objectives:
1. To be able to solve the problems encountered by students in the presents Grade Inquiry system of DCCP-Laoag City. 2. To identify the importance and difference of proposed system, from manual grade inquiry system of DCCP-Laoag City. 3. To design a system that is secured which cannot be modified or retrieved by unauthorized person. Scope and Limitations of the Study The Online Grade Inquiry System is intended to upgrade the existing system of showing or sending of student???s grades. It is a secured multi-user system that includes all functionalities of showing, editing and submitting of grades. The system is designed to operate from a web server and is accessible through any network or computer as long as there is an internet connection.
