Engaging students by efficiently monitoring attendance and participation

Schneider, P.A. (2010) Engaging students by efficiently monitoring attendance and participation. In: 13th First Year in Higher Education Conference (FYHE) 2010, 27 - 30 June 2010, Adelaide, SA, Australia



James Cook University is faced with a number of challenges in first year transition, which is exacerbated by the number of equity groups represented. This is made even more challenging in the bachelor of engineering, which is perhaps the most challenging degree program on offer. The development of an automated system for monitoring lecture attendance and gauging participation in on-course assessment is presented. This system could play a role in supporting institution-wide intervention and support initiatives, since non-attending students can be quickly and efficiently identified.
