A student attendance tracker only works if students check-in. campusM Attendance makes it easy for students to check-in within an intuitive mobile or desktop interface and sends automatic push notification reminders before class so that students don’t forget to record attendance. While student swipe card attendance systems rely on cards and readers for students to check in, all campusM Attendance asks is for students to have a smartphone and wi-fi access – a flexible attendance solution for the hyflex campus.
At the institutional level, online student attendance tracker data can be used to identify and support at-risk students, improving student attendance rates and preventing individual cases of attrition.

When a student checks in to an event, any outstanding reminder notification for that event are deleted, so the student is not unnecessarily asked to check in.

In this situation, students are asked to download the native app due to the requirement for Bluetooth and iBeacon visibility.
Tracking student attendance has always been about more than collecting data for FASFA or international student visa approvals. Roll call is there to help lecturers and faculty keep track of who’s present and who’s missing, and to improve student attendance by preventing attrition early on. With campusM Attendance, data is available in real time and can easily be exported to support student wellbeing efforts. At scale, this data can be used to better university and college attendance rates.
