Class Attendance

Automated, accurate, consistent, student-based attendance

Improve accuracy and save times with ScholarChip’s smart ID card-based classroom attendance. You simplify and speed up classroom attendance with the tap of a card, taking human error out of the equation. Teachers spend more time on lessons instead of clerical tasks.

Our eClass attendance portal takes automated student attendance. When students tap their smart ID cards onto a reader as they enter a classroom, they are automatically registered as on time or tardy. The teacher’s interface displays student photos that belong to a particular class; as the students tap, their photo changes from grayscale to full color indicating “present.” Teachers are able to override a tap, change attendance status, and confirm that eClass data is correct.

You’ll know who is in class in real time, and when our readers are combined with our Door Access module, all doors in a building or across the campus can be locked down with a single command. This immediacy improves reaction time and can save lives.

ScholarChip’s dynamic reporting identifies at-risk students sooner and helps you identify attendance trends for creating retention strategies based on quantifiable data.

Card readers are wall-mounted with Power over Ethernet for a lower total cost of ownership, or connected to a classroom PC. Readers can process 30 students in under a minute.



Automated Attendance improves learning outcomes and clarifies school rules. Identifying at-risk students sooner and understanding attendance trends results in improved retention strategies.
