Automated Classroom Attendance
Unlike other class attendance systems, ScholarChip's Classroom Attendance system counts all students as absent until they tap in on the Smart ID Card reader.
Classroom ID card readers reclaim 3-6 minutes of teaching time per class.
Mounted on the wall or at the teacher's desk, students simply tap in at the reader and take a seat. The attendance record is pushed to the ScholarChip cloud and into the school's SIS system. The automated system saves teaching time and allows teachers to focus on lessons, not roll call.
For states with funding tied to attendance, the ScholarChip Classroom Attendance system provides a real-time, accurate accounting of students present at any given time. More accuracy equals increased funding opportunities.
How Does ScholarChip's Automated Class Attendance System Work?
Students tap their smart IDs onto a reader as they enter a classroom. The classroom readers are a small USB device that plugs into the classroom PC or they can be wall mounted units with a pin pad.
The tap of the card automatically registers the student’s classroom attendance, including any tardy status. The teacher’s interface displays student photos. A tap changes the student photo from gray scale to full color.
Teachers have access to additional student information, including building attendance status. Teachers have the ability to override a tap, change a student’s attendance status and to approve the attendance data gathered.
