MESSAGES (Ho. Michael Jonh Jack R. Duavit) FormerCongressman 1st District Rixal In our efforts to increase the effectiveness of our educators, we are also looking for ways to reduce unnecessary burdens. This is the reason for the FASTER e-Grades System. This system streamlines the task of grading students and allows teachers more time to address the primary challenge of their profession: teaching our children the right discipline using the right methods. With this tool, teachers can focus on the basics of teaching so that the children can develop a love of learning and eventually use what they have learned in the service of the nation.
Messages: (Hon. Casimiro M. Ynares III) Governor, Rizal The FASTER e GRADES system is just one of the programs adopted by the province of Rizal to help teachers cope with their responsibilities. We hope that this program will prove to be an invaluable tool for teachers. We are certain that through this and other reforms, we can improve the delivery of educational services in Rizal.
INTRODUCTION The FASTER e GRADES System, which stand for Fast Automated System for Teacher Evaluation and Ratings, is a system automate the task of grading and ranking. It is an innovative, efficient yet inexpensive program that allows teachers to do away with the manual computation of grades. Instead, the program does all the computations on behalf of the teacher, and does faster and more accurately. The program also create a database that allows school administrator to review the performance of their students and implement necessary strategies for improvement.

It is usually designed as a box with space inside it for text.

Menus can be accessed using shortcuts. Shortcut- a combination of keys that shorten the process of interacting with system commands.

USB Flash Drive Care, Maintenanceand Troubleshooting. The USB drive must be kept in a cool dry place where it will not be susceptible to elements like fire, water, dust, etc. Do not drop the USB drive as it may jar the components inside and result in the device’s malfunction. If the user loses the USB drive, the data stored within cannot be retrieved. If the USB drives become corrupted, data retrieval may still be possible. The user should contact the system distributor and ask for help.
The USB drive must not be used to store data that is not relevant to the FASTER e-Grades system as they may result in the transfer of viruses or malware that can corrupt the data in the USB or cause the FASTER e Grades system to malfunction or even crash. The infection may also spread beyond the USB drive into the computer system that the user is accessing. If this case, all files contained in the computer system may become corrupted or become vulnerable to outright attacks from malicious individuals. The USB Drive must be set with a strong and secure password that only the user knows. This is very important as lack of password or the ease of finding out what it is may result in the unauthorized access of the FASTER e- Grades system.
SETTING A STRONG PASSWORD During the registration phase, users will be asked to enter a password to secure the use of their USB drive. Here are some pointers on how to set a strong password. 1. Do not use words or phrases that have personal significance. Mix letters, numbers and symbols, and use case sensitivity. (uppercase and lowercase letters) or what is known as a :pseudo- random alpha-numeric combination.
Find a good way to remember the password. Use punctuation to make harder to crack the password. Memorize the password, and avoid writing it down on a piece of paper. The longer the better, or not less than 6 characters. Use familiar clues that are not known to strangers.
