Student check in software is an application that is designed to replace paper-based systems for recording students’ times of arrival and other attendance details. The high number of students and classes in most educational settings means that it has become impractical to have a person dedicated to recording student arrivals. These software solutions record the name, ID and reason for attendance for each student as well as their arrival times. The information is available to other staff members who can then respond by notifying counsellors and other department staff.
The software allows educators to maintain an organized list of students in different classes and enables them to view and respond to any absences without having to be informed by a receptionist. This software also produces reports that show how many students were served, any wait times and other details that can be used for staffing and performance reviews.
