Need for An Attendance Management System
Why would an attendance management system need to be used in schools? There might be a lot of questions that institutes might be having, but they will be solving problems that institutes didn’t even know were problems because they did not have awareness about them. There are a lot of reasons why you need an attendance management system and how you can make it count for your school, especially when running online classes.
- Saving Time for Teachers
This is arguably the most immediate benefit of having an attendance management system. Teachers do not have to put in the extra effort to do roll calls in class and hence waste valuable time they can otherwise use to teach the students. In addition, teachers are also only human. They might make mistakes when marking the attendance, accidentally marking present students absent, because, in a paper-based system, there is always room for error. However, Teachmint can help eliminate all such problems.
- Better Compliance on The Side of The Students
Since the attendance is monitored automatically, the students will not get a chance to argue with anyone because if they don’t do it themselves they will be marked absent. Of course, amends can be made by the teachers in case of genuine mistakes on the side of the student, but in general, this means that attendance management becomes so much easier than before. In addition to better compliance, the system will also foster soft skills such as punctuality in the students, as they will be accountable if they don’t do it. With Teachmint, attendance management is much easier for teachers and makes students more responsible as well in the process.
- Better Student Performance
A paper-based attendance system can lead to inaccurate time reporting by students as well as on the part of the teachers in the form of plain human error. This is where Teachmint comes in. With Teachmint, tardiness and absenteeism can be combated with ease and veracity. Students may not find this appealing, but it would be for their own good. They will attend all the classes prescribed and as a result, will have better knowledge about what needs to be studied, what is important, and what the portions are for the exams with utmost clarity. It can also help boost your students’ performance manifold.
- Detailed Attendance Reports
The detailed attendance reports of each and every student in the class can be accessed by the teacher at any given time. This can give an idea as to how a student is in school generally, how many classes they have missed, and how much their parents need to pay attention to. With Teachmint, it is possible to keep a track of attendance reports and keep students in check, and the teachers can keep track of trends when a student is taking leave on a regular basis.
