Biometric student attendance monitoring

Human Recognition Systems : 16 August, 2013  (Application Story)
UK higher education provider is using MVerify biometric platform from Human Recognition Systems to manage student attendance and ensure compliance with Tier 4 visa requirements
Biometric student attendance monitoring

Human Recognition Systems has recently implemented its mobile student attendance management system for the higher education division of UK training provider, QA. The MVerify platform is the first solution of its kind to offer a truly mobile, real-time identification capability to monitor student attendance during teaching sessions, plus removes the need for manual capture and processing of information. MVerify instantly flags unauthorised absence ensuring administration staff can take the necessary action required to help the student.

In addition to reducing the costs and complexities around Home Office Tier 4 obligations, MVerify increases student engagement with their course of study, leading to improved performance, experience and student retention. Designed with flexibility in mind, MVerify enables full reporting of attendance data within the platform itself or, if preferred, the data can be directly fed into an institution’s existing Student Information System. At QA, Human Recognition Systems recently integrated MVerify with the Tribal SITS:Vision Student Information System in order to deliver a fully integrated management and reporting solution.

“Monitoring student attendance not only ensures conformity to the relevant Home Office regulations, it also allows us to track the student’s progress throughout their studies – there is a proven correlation between course attendance and excellent academic performance,” states Mike Brown, IT Director at QA. “The deployment of Human Recognition Systems’ MVerify platform has played a key role in the automation of our student attendance registration and monitoring. It has been well received by staff and students due to its ease of use and speed. To date we have 100% student fingerprint enrolment and identification in class, processing on average 800 attendance transactions per day with student identification and registration achieved within just three seconds. Prior to MVerify, all of this data would have had to be manually collated, recorded and processed.”

“MVerify provides a versatile identity verification solution to institutions where the cost of failing to properly manage identity can be significant,” states Neil Norman, Founder and Managing Director, New Markets at Human Recognition Systems. “Within the education sector, failure to effectively monitor the attendance of Tier 4 students can lead to a significant administrative overhead and even a reduction in the number of Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) an institution can assign. There is also a risk the institution will have their sponsorship licence for international students revoked. The resulting impact is a large loss in revenue and reputation, particularly if there is a large intake of international students.”
