Schoolmanagement has come a long way from the days of recording manual data, maintaining rooms full of documents and folders, and transferring files, documents and reports from one table to another before it got to its final destination. Now, a click can do it all! There is no reason why attendance management should not be stepped up too!
Attendance is directly related to students’ performance. A student who is regular is more apt to be consistent in his/her performance. Attendance is also an indication of how seriously the students and teachers are taking the curriculum and how appealing the classes are to them. But monitoring and recording attendance of a large group of students is both tedious and time consuming.
However, with the help of technology, recording attendance can prove to be quick and easy. Implementing an attendance management solution can have many benefits. Some of them are:
- Reducing paperwork
- Reducing workload on teachers
- Saving time and money
- Eliminating manual errors in data entry
- Transparency in operations
- Status and tracking of leave requests
- Checking absenteeism
- Keeping parents updated regarding attendance
- Generating attendance report at a click
- Secure and reliable
Teachers can enter information about the students directly into the system, without using pen and paper. Alternatively, attendance may also be recorded using RFID and bio-metrics based system, where each student is given a fingerprinting card for recording attendance. Such a system will also display a warning message for students with low attendance rate.
