Design and Implementation of a Student Grade Point Average System

INTRODUCTION

Grading in education is the process of applying standardized measurements of varying levels of achievement in a course. Semester/session grade-point average and cumulative grade-point average (CGPA) are calculated to represent numerically a student’s quality of performance.

All grades from all current classes are averaged to create a grade point average (GPA) for the marking period. The GPA is calculated by taking the number of grade points a student earned in a given period of time.

These averages are used to determine if a student qualifies for certain academic actions and programs. The life and success of every student is visible through his academic performance, hence it is required of every student to keep, and monitor his academic performance.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM  

An undergraduate at some point of his academic year of study is faced with so much challenges keeping an accurate CGPA every academic session. Most times, he surfs the net for solution, he  ends up not finding a GP calculator compactible with the his school format.   The following are some of the challenges discovered :

  1. inaccurate record of his/her Grade point (GP)
  2. remembering credit load of some course after a long period
  3. misplacing credit loads with credit unit of a course.
  4. Poor storage platform which cannot be queried or easily retrieved

This record does not have any good platform for storage after a session or a semester. This frustrates every interest that the students have in computing his CGPA therefore resulting in student being nonchalant about their CGPA.
