Blowing Off Class? We Know

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/03/opinion/blowing-off-class-we-know.html?

Tools developed in-house and by a slew of companies now give administrators digital dashboards that can code students red or green to highlight who may be in academic trouble. Handsome “heat maps” — some powered by apps that update four times a day — can alert professors to students who may be cramming rather than keeping up. As part of a broader effort to measure the “campus engagement” of its students, Ball State University in Indiana goes so far as to monitor whether students are swiping in with their ID cards to campus-sponsored parties at the student center on Saturday nights.

This paper gives the implementation techniques of RFID, integrated with biometric sensor to improve the security system. In this system we use both techniques for registering proper attendance of student. No one can do the proxy .In this system we are replacing old paper base attendance system. Movements and increase their safety. In this we required computer system. This computer system has dedicated “Visual Basic” based software to deal with different fingerprint and RFID tags. Attendance will be stored daily according to time and date. when the data of RFID reader and Finger print reader is matched then and then only the attendance will be registered.

Indiana State University Uses Swipe Card and Other Data to Improve Student Engagement, Run Early Alert System

Examples of how CRM for retention extends beyond admissions at Indiana State University:

  • Online education: Initial tests are underway to intervene if a student has not logged into the LMS by the first Friday of a semester, in which case the system automatically sends an email to the professor to check in with the student to see if there is a problem with start-up.
  • Financial aid: If a freshman student drops below the minimum 12 units required for federal financial aid each semester, the system automatically prompts the student success office to take immediate action.
  • Registrar’s office: If a student puts in a transcript request, instead of the boilerplate “we’re sorry to see you go” email, the student is contacted immediately by an advisor through the student’s preferred communications channel (currently undertaken via multiple systems, but moving toward a full CRM integration).
  • Event management: Emails automatically sent to qualified work-study students suggesting they attend a work-study fair.
  • Varsity athletics: Monitor and record feedback from professors regarding athletes’ academic performance and engagement (e.g., attendance and grade checks).

How Student Data Improves the Lunch Line

Schools around the country are using student data in all sorts of ways: to personalize education, to figure out which teaching techniques are working, and to make school services more efficient.

One place to actually see student data in action is the modern school cafeteria. 

At Carr Intermediate School in Santa Ana California, sixth graders start school a day early for orientation. Among the lessons they’ll learn: how to use their ID cards to get through the lunch line quickly.
