Security is the degree of protection against danger, damage, loss, and criminal activity. Securities as a form of protection are structures and processes that provide or improve security as a condition. It is indeed a great demand and can somehow be a great loss if it is prevented. Security with human responsibility and interference are now at risk of loss because of the technology that certain machines can do. One of this is the swipe card technology.
Swipe card technology is the process plastic embedding of encoded data into card with a magnetic strip that is read by passing the card through a usually slotted electronic device. Personal recognition and identification are special function to this kind of technology. With the use of this, the instances of getting human incorrect identification will be diminished and. With this, organizations and schools (specifically) will be in great advantage of security and order.
Every school must be on its highest security and order to ensure it’s jurisdiction within the school premises. Schools do have students willing to learn to the extent of always attending their classes, but in reality we can’t ignore the fact that some of the students do not attend their class due to some important reason and that their parents are not aware of it. As the problem become exceedingly noticeable, the researchers aim to develop a Student Attendance Monitoring System using Swipe Card Technology that will provide and effective and accurate answer for monitoring absences.
Student Attendance Monitoring System is known as an essential part of the school security in terms of attendance checking and performance of a certain student, combines with the Swipe Card Technology, The researchers aim to come up with the solution for a secured, fast, and accurate system that will answer the parents, faculty concerns for the students.
Significance of the study
This study will be beneficial to the faculty members, administration, and the parents of the student of Mary Josette Academy. It provides the school a secured log-in and log-out for the students that will aid the problems on student attendance monitoring. The student will now be educated on the essence of logging-in and logging-out for their attendance purposes.
The system can create reports of the student’s attendance for the faculty and parent evaluation. It can send SMS warning messages to the student’s parent/guardian concerning on their 3 consecutive absences.
Figure1. Conceptual Framework
Figure 1 shows the process needed in developing the system, The inputs are the needed requirements to process the needed student information for the system. The process involves the steps in developing the needed requirement that will lead to the output which is the Attendance Monitoring System using Swipe Card Technology for Mary Josette Academy.
