Information technology (IT) is the application of computers and telecommunications equipment to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data, often in the context of a business or other enterprise.The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, including computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors,internet, telecom equipment, e-commerce and computer services. Technology (from Greek τέχνη, techne, “art, skill, cunning of hand”; and -λογία, -logia) refer to the collection of tools, including machinery, modifications, arrangements and procedures used by humans. Engineering is the discipline that seeks to study and design new technologies. Technologies significantly affect human as well as other animal species’ ability to control and adapt to their natural environments. The term can either be applied generally or to specific areas: examples include construction technology, medical technology and information technology. The human species’ use of technology began with the conversion of natural resources into simple tools.
The prehistoric discovery of how to control fire increased the available sources of food and the invention of the wheel helped humans in traveling in and controlling their environment. Recent technological developments, including the printing press, the telephone, and the Internet, have lessened physical barriers to communication and allowed humans to interact freely on a global scale. However, not all technology has been used for peaceful purposes; the development of weapons of ever-increasing destructive power has progressed throughout history, from clubs to nuclear weapons. Technology has affected society and its surroundings in a number of ways. In many societies, technology has helped develop more advanced economies (including today’s global economy) and has allowed the rise of a leisure class. Many technological processes produce unwanted by-products, known as pollution, and deplete natural resources, to the detriment of Earth’s environment. Various implementations of technology influence the values of a society and new technology often raises new ethical questions.
Examples include the rise of the notion of efficiency in terms of human productivity, a term originally applied only to machines, and the challenge of traditional norms. Today, people are relying more on technology. Technology refers to all the rays people use their creation and discoveries to assure their needs and desires; therefore technology includes the use of both primitive and highly advanced tools and method. The inventions and the development of new technology, people are using the most important and most interesting machine that man has developed the computer. Researchers also have a responsibility to reflect on how their work and the knowledge they are generating might be used in the broader society. Researchers assume different roles in public discussions of the potential uses of new knowledge. They often provide expert opinion or advice to government agencies, educational institutions, private companies, or other organizations. They can contribute to broad-based assessments of the benefits or risks of new knowledge and new technologies.
They frequently educate students, policymakers, or members of the public about scientific or policy issues. They can lobby their elected representatives or participate in political rallies or protests. In some of these capacities, researchers serve as experts, and their input deserves special consideration in the policy-making process. In other capacities, they are acting as citizens with a standing equal to that of others in the public arena. Researchers have a professional obligation to perform research and present the results of that research as objectively and as accurately as possible. When they become advocates on an issue, they may be perceived by their colleagues and by members of the public as biased. But researchers also have the right to express their convictions and work for social change, and these activities need not undercut a rigorous commitment to objectivity in research.
The values on which science is based—including honesty, fairness, collegiality, and openness—serve as guides to action in everyday life as well as in research. These values have helped produce a scientific enterprise of unparalleled usefulness, productivity, and creativity. So long as these values are honored, science—and the society it serves—will prosper. The Banjo Laurel National High School is a public school in Banjo West, Tanauan City, Batangas. This school Banjo Laurel National High School was establish on June 2 1975. The mission of the school is committed to mold and spiritual values, upgrade their academic performance and provide pathways to success through the concerted efforts of the teachers, parents and other stakeholders education.
The vision of the school is by 2015, DepEd is globally recognized for good governance and for developing functionally literate and God-loving Filipinos. Mrs. Elsa V. Lladoc she’s the first teacher in BLNHS and now she is the Teacher in Charge in this school. The school maintains a small staff of teachers and personnel as compared to its growing population. There are teacher handling as much as four different subject a side from being a class adviser and area coordinator. Majority of the teachers handle three different year level.
Significant of the study
The researchers believe that developing the Computerized Grading System can make the grade easier and faster to compute. Specially, the proposed system will be beneficial to the following:
Banjo Laurel National High School
With the help of this system, the school will improve when it comes in computing the grade. The Banjo Laurel National High School will be the one of the school used the Computerized Grading System.
With the help of this system the teachers will not used the manual system. They will used our proposed system. And with he help of that they would be easier and faster when it comes in computing the grade of the students.
Developing a computerized grading system for BLNHS would make the task of recording and computing grades easier for the teachers. This will not only benefit to the teachers of the school but will also to the students because of he improvement in the accuracy of calculations and in the proficiency and productivity.
To Future researchers
The study is deemed used to future researchers as it will provide information for further research regarding the topic.
Statement of a Problem
The study of aimed to provide a computerized grading system to Banjo Laurel National High School. Upon the investigation of the researchers, they found out the following problems:
1. The existing process of computing the grades is manual and its more risky than a computerized system.
2. The manual records are often misplaced.
3. It is time consuming to calculate grades of a students manually.
Objectives of the Study
Specifically the study rough to meet the following objectives:
1. To create a system that automatically calculates the grades of the students. 2. To develop the computing grading function such as record keeping. 3. To establish accuracy and convenience in the computing grading process.
Scope and Limitation
The scope of our study is for the grading system of the said school.
