How Automated Attendance Management System benefits Educational Institutions
Automated Attendance Management System maintains an agile technology that changes the traditional attendance processes into a smarter and more effective system. It makes attendance interesting and time saving for teachers.
Like any other sector, schools and colleges are also burdened with a huge amount of administrative work. With several managerial tasks to take care of, educators often have less time to focus on teaching. A digital solution can aid them in using their time more productively.
Attendance Management System is a solution that can help teachers with better efficiency in the classrooms.
The manual attendance system unnecessarily consumes their time. Besides this, they have to calculate attendance records for the final evaluation of students which again is a fairly manual process.
An automated attendance management system can overcome such inefficiency.
Do you know teachers can save 10-15 minutes daily in attendance with automation?
It makes attendance processes faster and reduces manual work. It also gives them a detailed report of student attendance records and saves the time-consuming calculations.
Academia Student Information System calculates attendance percentage daily with absent and leaves records.
Here are the technologies used in an attendance management system:
Biometric Integration is fast becoming the most reliable and accurate attendance method in schools/colleges. It saves time, efforts and makes attendance processes efficient. As it is a fingerprint-based system there is rarely any chance of proxy or fake attendance.
The fingerprints of students are saved in the biometric system in the beginning and that data is integrated with an education ERP. After that students just have to place their fingers on the machine to confirm their attendance.
Apart from biometric, some institutes prefer this technology for automating the attendance system. RFID of Radio Frequency Identification as the name suggests records attendance through radio waves. It has a unique ID number for each student given on a smart card and can record attendance within seconds. It is also capable of reading several cards at once.
Students just have to pass through an RFID and reader where attendance gets marked and data automatically transferred to an integrated Education ERP.
The faculty portal is an online platform offered by a Student Information System for teachers. It not only helps connect teachers and students but also allows teachers to manage attendance, time table, assignment distribution and more.
For instance, if a student is on a leave, it appears based on the specific leave he/she has opted for, and if the student is busy in other curricular activities; teachers can mark them accordingly, thus avoiding confusion. In case of an uninformed absence, an automated SMS/notification is sent to the respective parent/guardian so that they can be aware of the whereabouts of their child.
