Abstract: This study aimed to develop a web-based information system portal with short messaging system (SMS) support for the students of Aklan State University-Kallibo Campus. A test case was used to test the functionality of the development of SMS and web-based inquiry portal of grades and accounts for the students, and web-based submission of grades for the faculty. The system was evaluated by the IT Experts using the ISO 9126 software quality characteristics which included functionality, reliability, usability, efficiency, maintainability, and portability. A questionnaire was used in the evaluation of the system’s level of effectiveness. The respondents of the study were randomly chosen 300 students and 20 faculty members of Aklan State University-Kalibo Campus as well as five (5) IT Experts coming from different sectors. Mean and standard deviation were used as statistical tools. Results showed that the web-based with SMS support for grades and accounts inquiry system was very effective as per students’ evaluation which means that the proposed system’s performance was very effective because it served the purpose for which it was developed in order to meet the students’ needs. Also, the web-based submission of grades was very effective as per teachers’ evaluation which means that the newly developed system provides a very satisfactory quality of service to faculty members because it can facilitate the electronic submission of students’ grades through internet facilities anywhere and anytime without necessarily having the teachers’ physical presence in school.
