Abstract
There has been an increase in poor educational performance in the Ghanaian society that has caused many to sort out the root problem. As shown in previous scholarly work, there are many problems that face the Ghanaian education. These can range from stagnating school enrolment, inefficiency of educational administration to teacher training. One research made a note that some of these problems were long standing while others arose because of the unchanging educational system to reflect changing times. For instance, Ghanaian parents continue to grow more concerned about the relevance and quality of education being provided to their wards. Another article by Marzano and Pickering found a correlation between homework given and the performance of children. It is believed that with appropriate homework and parent involvement, children were seen to improve. It is with that in mind that I came up with the solution, EduApp. EduApp provides an assignment approval system that would help parents review their wards submissions. As a mobile and web application, EduApp is geared toward guaranteeing parents the quality of assignments given to their wards is implemented for the Ghanaian context. It is intended to serve as an attendance assessment, assignment distribution, teacher evaluation and student performance overview.
