Objectives: This study focused on the development of a Customized Grade Evaluation and Student Retention System (GESRS) for Eastern Samar State University, a state university located in Eastern Samar, Philippines. The major functions of the system are (a) monitoring of student’s retention status and (b) evaluation of student’s grade. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This study adapted the Developmental – Evaluative research design. The researcher developed a system using the Iterative Development Model. The system was evaluated using two (2) sets of questionnaires. The first questionnaire adopted metrics from the ISO 9126 Software Product Quality Model. The second questionnaire used the IBM Computer Usability Satisfaction Scale. Findings: After the rigorous development, the researcher was able to incorporate the following restores into the system: (a) Student grade evaluation with student retention (b) reports generation of students with student retention status (c) grade adding, uploading and updating module for instructors. The expert testing resulted to a mean of4.50 for reliability, 4.68 for usability, 4.73 for efficiency, 4.60 for maintainability, and 4.64 for portability, all were interpreted as highly functional, highly reliable, highly usable, highly efficient, highly maintainable and highly portable respectively. This means that the system was free from errors, easy to use, has proper data management and can be transported from one computer system to another easily. The End-user testing recorded a high rating for question 6, 1, and 2 respectively. This only means that the end-users found the system easy to use, was satisfied with the over-all look of the system and found the simple button and module orientation of the system easy to navigate. It was also evident in the results that they were able to finish their tasks using the system. Application and Improvements: The successful development of the system will pave way to the successful implementation of the retention policy of the university and will further enhance the monitoring of student grades and retention status.
