Adoption of an Open Source Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for Database Buildup of the Students’ Scholastic Records

Milleth M. Bautista and Benilda Eleonor V. Comendador
Abstract—Various ways were employed by higher education institution in order to ensure the accuracy of collected students’ scholastic records. Students’ grades are now collected and stored in digitized form, enabling a faster, more reliable safe keeping. Nonetheless, these organizations found the conversion of printed out scholastic records accumulated through the years to be both tedious and time consuming. Furthermore, manual encoding of students’ grades can often result to inaccuracy. Thus, the paper focuses in assisting Higher Education Institutions by using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) in automatically recognizing and storing students’ grades from printed out grade sheets. With the use of this tool, each grade on the scanned grade sheet would be stored and indexed to the respective student, lessening the tedious task of manually encoding the grades. In addition the system would also allow the digital storing of the scanned grade sheet.

Index Terms—Optical character recognition (OCR), Tesseract, open source, grade sheet, scholastic records, database buildup.
