information application. With this information can be delivered and accessed via various
types of portable devices immediately. Mobile information provides mobile users with
versatile communication to other people and expedient notification of important events, yet
with much flexibility, portability and mobility. It also permits mobile users to have access to
information regardless of their physical locations. Looking to the flexibility, portability and
mobility offered by mobile technologies, here in this paper we will come out with one of
mobile information application called SMS based exam result relaying system. This system
will enable students to have access to their exam result via mobile phones. A successful
system is a system that can fulfill user satisfaction and can be accepted by the users.
Usability is one of the important factors in determining user acceptance toward a new
system. In order to find out the usability of the system we conducted a usability testing and
distributing questionnaire. The questionnaire is based on the four usability factors such as
effectiveness, learnability, flexibility and attitude to determine students’ view on the SMS
based exam result relaying system. The result of this study showed that the overall level of
the usability for four construct (effectiveness, learnability, flexibility and attitude) in
student’s point of view is in the acceptable level.
