Login to the Self Attendance page at the beginning of each class session. Click on "Get password". A random password will show up on the screen. students will use that password and the last 4 digits of their Student ID to sign in. At the end of the class or after confirming that everyone has signed in, click on "Clear password" to reset the password to an unknown value which will not be shown (you may be prompted to login again afterwards). This last action will prevent a student from helping another student to sign in from a different location by sending them the session password.

Students Sign-in

Students will login to the self-attendance page using the last 4 digits of their Student ID in the first textbox and the session password in the second textbox. They will then select their class from a list and record their own attendance. The IP address of the computer used is also recorded in case an absent student would ask a friend to send them the session password to sign in remotely. Also, always remeber to clear/reset the password to deny unverified entry.
