Student Attendance at classes has long been a source of concern to those in authority at our colleges and schools and for number of reasons.
Some colleges have a wish just to improve their attendance records overall. Others still could be concerned for example, that certain students are particularly prone to absence.
- Can the trend of such absences be reversed if those responsible knew more instantly about the employee's early attendance trend?
- Are there early warning signs?
Student Time is an innovative web based system is designed and developed in Dublin by FlexTime.
Student Time can provide you with exactly the type of attendance information you need to support good decision making about your students including their welfare. Student Time records and manages the attendance of students attending lectures or classes, taking information from a range of sources.
The system also provides access to student attendance activity for Lecturers and others in authority that would have a role in ensuring good attendance.
We work with the client in delivering a solution specific to their needs. So in general we provide our core solution, and can changes it “around the edges” to suit the culture or the need of the individual situation.
How is Data Captured?
There are many ways we can capture time information.
For example, students can record arrival and departure times via Time Terminals. These devices can be activated by plastic cards, PIN numbers or biometric fingerprints – or a combination of these.
The pin pad allows a student who normally uses a card to clock, to input a PIN code if the card is forgotten. There is no limit to the number of times the Student can clock in/out – so the system is capable of capturing miscellaneous recordings during the day, reflecting absences, doctor's appointments etc.
Other methods that we can explore with you include the use of Remote Reading and Mobile Devices, Mobile Phones/PDAs, PC and Touch Screens etc.
The Student Time Software then makes all of the attendance activity available at PCs – which can be located anywhere … Ask us for more details at 003531 2609680
