Or how to produce an attendance monitoring system using the access control system

why do you need attendance monitoring
Why do you need attendance monitoring
  • Need to monitor physical presence of undergraduates at lectures for borders agency
  • Academic engagement –identify students with potential to drop out
  • Ensure attendance and engagement before bursaries paid
  • For professionalbody approval –Health, Social Work, Life Sciences courses
    • Lots of paper based manual systems in operation at present
history of smart cards at bradford
History of smart cards at Bradford
  • Smart cards with MiFare 1K chip for photocopying and Library access introduced for students in Summer 2002
    • Bar code for Library management system
  • Also introduced cards for staff for Library access
    • Amazing how few had them when we upgraded!
access control system at bradford
Access control system at Bradford
  • Progeny (MiFare based) and Integra (mag stripe based) systems in use on separate cards
    • Both highly labour intensive to support as each lock has to be visited and updated
  • Salto project started summer 2005
    • originally to protect new AV equipment in teaching rooms–so staff only
salto proved popular
Salto proved popular
  • Soon students needed access to major buildings
  • Salto database updated daily from student record and HR systems using Calopus
  • All student cards programmed with Salto capability from Summer 2007 as part of enrolment process
salto in april 2009
Salto in April2009
  • On line locks – 113
    • Now on entrance to most buildings
    • Many corridors
    • Car park barriers linked to Salto system summer 2008
  • Off line locks – 361
    • On centrally timetabled teaching rooms
    • On equipment cupboards in teaching rooms
    • Staff only areas
  • Card plus PIN locks installed for secure areas
  • 100+ awaiting installation
key advantages of salto
Key advantages of Salto
  • Online locks interrogate central database in real time for appropriate access rights
  • Online locks transfer audit trail to central database
  • Black list of users transferred from online lock to every card
key advantages off line locks
Key advantages - off line locks
  • Receive updated black list from users’ cards
  • Store audit trail of cards used and write it back to each card
    • transferred to central database via next use of an on line lock
  • An off line lock can be portable so can be passed round classroom

Choose the SVN Virtual network option from Salto web site for a better explanation! www.saltosystems.com

so how does this help attendance monitoring
So how does this help attendance monitoring?
  • Salto database contains user id, date,time and lock id
  • Plan to extract data into the attendance field of the student record system, SITS
  • SITS will trigger text message and emails for non-attendanceto student and, later, course administrators and UKBA administrator
  • Attendance data can be extracted by anyone with SITS access
assumptions made at bradford
Assumptions made at Bradford
  • That we can match a portable card reader to a particular lecture or lab session
  • We do not want to issue new cards to all students
  • If one student asks another one to ‘swipe them in’ they are still engaged with the University
  • Accessing the Library or other building entry point does not satisfy the UKBA
  • Departments will extract their own class attendance data
    • if any professional body requires this information
the issues
The issues!
  • Do you want to use bio-metrics to ensure Person and not Card is being monitored?
    • Has anyone done this yet in HE? Costs?
  • How to stop one person swiping lots of cards?
    • Who verifies the person and card match?
  • How do you prevent queues down corridors at the start of lectures if you use door readers?
    • How do you know student has then attended the lecture?
    • Bradford aim to use portable readers in large classes
  • What constitutes a ‘Contact point’?
smart card futures at bradford

  • Printing and copying using Pharos –purse NOT on card
  • Sport Centre control –purse NOT on card
  • Possible cashless vending - ?????
  • Legacy access control systems (100+) nearly redundant
