Student card during “IN” session gets scanned at each step either by gate entry or by bus / transport entry. Based on this entry daily attendance is automatically captured.
Gate guards scan the cards of all walkers coming either through private vehicles / cycles / walking. Once verified they are allowed access to the campus and their attendance gets recorded automatically.
Students coming by institution transport / buses get their card scanned both at the time of boarding, and up on reaching at institution gate. As this is 100% verified data, this gets recorded automatically as attendance data.
The “Assistance Control” project was inspired by the basic idea of the “Bologna Process”, a Pan-European collaboration which started in 1999, to adapt technology to provide a better quality of education that would allow improvement of the next generation of classroom teaching.
The best project finally chosen and tested involved students registered for classes with NFC phones, during the academic year 2011–2012 at “Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca, Campus Madrid” (UPSAM).
This resulted in the senior students at the School of Computer Engineering to certify 99.5% accuracy and ease of attendance that ensured continuous assessment without loss of instructional time allocated to this activity.
