New version of NFC-powered automated classroom attendance system released

Andy Williams   ||   Oct 15, 2012  ||   

ScholarChip, a provider of smart ID solutions for schools, has updated its classroom attendance solution to meet new state mandates requiring schools to actually track the time a student is present in class.

Its automated student time and attendance reporting, also known as ASTAR, is ScholarChip’s latest version of its classroom attendance service .and provides accurate to-the-minute reporting of a student’s attendance.

The time a student spends in class is now part of a teacher’s performance review. Without automation these mandates are difficult and expensive to implement. ScholarChip automates the collection of this classroom data and supports integration with student information systems.

Students tap their contactless ID cards on a reader as they enter a classroom which registers the student’s attendance. With the new mandates, students also need to tap when leaving class (for example to attend a meeting with a guidance counselor) and tap again when re-entering the classroom. The time a student is absent from class is recorded.

ASTAR is supported on three platforms: a browser based service; a mobile Android App available for use with NFC-enabled tablets and smart phones and a platform that is designed to operate with a wall-mounted smart card reader inside a classroom.
