Scholar Chip - Card Based Classroom Attendance, pdf download buttonScholarChip K-12 SolutionsScholarChip’s dynamic reporting can identify “at risk” attendance issues and help to identify attendance trends in creating retention strategies.

ScholarChip® card-based classroom attendance simplifies and speeds the taking of classroom attendance down to the tap of a card. Card-based attendance requires little or no instructor intervention, resulting in more time on task. Depending on class size, card readers may be wall-mounted or connected to the classroom PC. Card-based attendance reduces the inconsistencies seen when instructors take classroom attendance, providing administrators with more reliable and uniform attendance reporting.

Colleges and Universities
In college and university settings automated classroom attendance may be used to capture a student’s fulfillment of class time requirements.

K-12
In a K-12 environment the application identifies each student as On-Time Present, Late Present, or if no card taps are detected, as Absent. These three time deltas define ‘Present’ and ‘Late’ within the length of the period. K-12 classroom attendance data is automatically reconciled with building attendance data. Class cuts are reported as they happen. Students that tap into class without having first been recognized at a building entry kiosk are reported.
