How does campusM help Higher Ed improve student attendance?

Student attendance trackers only work 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 system data can be used to identify and support at-risk students, improving student attendance rates and preventing individual cases of attrition.

Can we use your student attendance tracking app to send students reminders about upcoming classes?

Yes. You can configure up to 3 notifications per event – the timing of these notifications can be configured before or after the event start time. 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.

Does your student attendance app offer multiple check-in validation options?

Yes. Our student attendance tracking system provides three methods to validate student check-ins: Geolocation, iBeacon crowdsourcing, and IP ranges. For more information on what to expect from campusM Attendance validation, check out this student attendance system documentation within the Ex Libris campusM Knowledge Center.

Do we have to set up a validation process for your student attendance tracking app to work?

No. While we do offer different validation options that can be used separately or in tandem to verify that a student was in class, you can also opt out of the validation process entirely. With many institutions pivoting to hybrid learning models, our customers have been using Attendance’s flexible validation settings to check students into class, no matter where they are physically.

Can your student attendance software be configured in real-time?

Yes. The institution can make dynamic changes to the student and instructor check-in experiences through the App Manager, a central web-based administration tool.

Can instructors use Attendance to check students into class?

Yes. Attendance has a separate interface for teaching staff to check students into class, which serves as an alternative and supplement to student check-ins. For more information on the instructor Attendance experience, click here.

Is it possible for a student to use your college attendance software to check into a class without a mobile device?

Yes. Students can use the web app as well as the campusM native app to check in to an event, unless the institution selected Crowd Source Validation as the only validation mechanism. In this situation, students are asked to download the native app due to the requirement for Bluetooth and iBeacon visibility.

How can your student attendance system help improve university attendance rates?

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.
