The success of an educational institute begins with engaging students in the classroom and having regular classroom attendance. A higher classroom attendance results in better marks, retention rates as well a stronger relationship between teachers/ curriculums due to improved communication. When a student is present at class, they are more likely to learn and retain information. Above facts are enough reasons to have an attendance monitoring system for the classroom.
There have been many advancements in the field of attendance systems, but traditional handwritten paper or computer spreadsheets still dominate. This means that it is difficult for teachers to track students’ progress and fraudulent behaviour can go unnoticed with these methods- especially if there’s no automatic verification. But with today’s technology-driven world in which we live by its very own rules; this responsibility has become easier than ever before! Automated solutions save you from all these troubles – plus provide more insight into your student’s learning style through analytics reports.
