Time and Attendance Tracking
For many Institute districts, tracking the amount of time students spend performing class time is vital for planning and funding. To improve security and increase attendance rates, the Spring Institute district in Houston, Texas, has distributed RFID-enabled ID badges to 13,500 of its 36,000 students since December 2013. The technology replaces the manual attendance tracking that faculty had to perform for each class session, and each student.
With RFID-enabled plastic card personalization and integration of digital photo identification solutions, Institutes can move from a handwritten to an automated approach. Smart access card solutions deliver a new level of account- ability and enforcement that can help reduce the number of tardiest. This wise investment of the Institute budget directly gives students more in-class time, while saving administrative time and money.
