Student’s attendance management system
MetadataShow full item record
Taking attendance/roll call is very important because research has it that being present for classes is an influential factor to a student’s success. The current attendance assessment process in Makerere University is a manual and paper-based process therefore, it is my major objective to develop a portable attendance system equipped with an online database, especially to prevent data loss as well as to promote paperless and a greener environment. Besides that, the application will help to reduce time being wasted, leading to a higher learning productivity in class. There are a few paperless attendance systems that have been developed but such systems need to be equipped with either a computer or RFID reader, resulting in additional cost for hardware and its maintenance. With that in mind, I have aimed to address this issue by having a system with minimal hardware requirement and at the same time, enhancing the mobility aspect of the existing attendance systems.
