Elsa V. Isip | Melissa P. Picones



This study aimed to help the guidance counselors, psychometrician, and staff of the Guidance and Counseling Center of the Technological Institute of the Philippines-Quezon City (GCC-TIPQC) in tracking and monitoring the academic performance of the students. This study was conceptualized in view of the difficulty of the GCC in managing and monitoring students’ academic performance as well as their guidance records. Currently, this information is stored in a folder kept in a filing cabinet, where retrieval and generation of reports are the major problems.

The developed system is capable of managing, monitoring, and organizing student academic performance and guidance records. It integrates a decision support system that automatically interprets psychological exam results based on standard table used by the guidance counselors, and it also provides an interactive virtual interview module to record interview sessions with the students. Reports will be easily generated to come up with inputs for decision-making. The students are also given a separate interface to personally inquire and monitor their academic performances.

To evaluate the developed system, the ISO/IEC 9126 was used. The respondents rated the system as 4.41 or very acceptable in terms of functionality, reliability, usability, efficiency, maintainability, and portability software quality factors.
