How do you identify your student? Is it the right way? Or it has loopholes that can easily be breached or manipulated. Here are the 3 signs which indicate that you are following the wrong student identification system. Let’s check it out.
You are Following Manual Log Book for Student Identification

A student can falsify their name and ID in the manual log book, and you have no option to cross check. Even if you do that it will be time-consuming. Additionally, manual log book can be manipulated when it comes to calling for attendance.
You are Using Plastic Id Card for Student Identification
Plastic ID cards can be copied and manipulated. Anyone can make a duplicate plastic ID card and pretend to be your student. So, you will have little chance of detecting them if you use the plastic ID card for student identification. Besides this method is costly too. It incurs extra cost on making new ID card every time a new student admit
RFID cards can be copied and manipulated too. Anyone can fool the system. This system only identifies the card that is punched not the person who is punching. As a result, the student can pass their card to others, or exchange their card to access your facility which required student identification. Besides, this technology can’t create an audit trail, provides convenience and can’t provide effective result. So, if you are still using this RFID system, you are following the wrong method in student identification.

In a nutshell, adding biometric technology will create a robust student identification system that is cost saving, efficient, accurate and convenient.
