One of the core values of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Muntinlupa is the “Sense of Righteousness”, the second key priority area of PLmun as a university of values, which means being virtuous is inculcated into the minds of students. In molding the students, the university conducts activities such as seminars and workshops. However, these activities were not enough to monitor the behavior of students inside the university and there were difficulties in accessing the violations committed by students since everything was still being done manually. Also, there was no mechanism that can process violation reports faster and real-time information to the parents of the student violator.
The study aims to develop a computerized system for recording and accessing of students’
violation of policies and notification to their parents. The system features include an up-to-date tracking
record of students’ offenses. Also, the system provides general reports such as—list of student violators,
students who complied with the sanctions and those who did not. Significantly, the system provides real
time notification to the parents of violators through SMS. The study utilized a quantitative research
design. A user acceptance test was conducted with the Guidance Office as the respondents since they
are the intended users of the system and selected IT experts. The results showed an average mean from
both the IT Experts and the users was 4.62 with verbal interpretation of Excellent. The outcome of the
evaluation of the software indicated that the system is beneficial to the university, especially the
Guidance Office through its innovative and modernized process, reduced time and effort for Guidance
Counselors. With the proposed system, an immediate counseling for the student violators can be
conducted to prevent recurrence of such disobedience.
