The proposed system will monitor student academic progress by automating results processing and analysis of exams while maintaining a database of student scores. Currently, schools use multiple software to achieve the basic task of analysing student performance; that is a spreadsheet software for handling student’s scores and a different tool for preparing student reports. Use of these systems require knowledge on how to use them such as knowledge of spreadsheet formulas. The proposed system will be developed using Rapid Application Development (RAD) model because of its suitability for projects with fewer people and a short development time. The proposed system will store a database of students’ performance from the beginning of their academic journey, making it easier to track the trends in an individual student’s. This in turn leads to informed and efficient student mentoring. By automating the results analysis, time wasted in manual computation of the results will be reclaimed and harnessed in dispensing quality education by increasing contact hours between learners and teachers, hence boosting student’s morale.
