ABSTRACT

Abstract: In grading students’ scores, tutors in Ghana often use spread sheet programmes for this purpose. This approach is subject to errors (in the case where a student score is mistakenly entered as being greater than the total mark) and involves more manual work by tutors after entering students’ raw data - marks and grades have to be copied to a word-processing program and a final output form adopted by Polytechnics in Ghana is then prepared. We have developed a software program named ‘Assessment Program for Polytechnics’ to relieve tutors of this burden. This assessment program uses inputs specified by tutors and generates the final output form automatically without much work. The software program warns tutors of wrong inputs, if any. It was developed using MATLAB and has a graphical user interface to make it user friendly
