Keeping track of your attendance is made easier with the TDS Student Portal, which allows you to see your overall program school admissions attendance and attendance for individual modules. Attendance requests for courses may also be submitted using the TDS Student Portal.
Keeping you on the right track
We have a method in place to keep track of your attendance to try to assist you in staying on track with your studies. When you enter a class, you will utilize asmart card,’ which will (there will be a cardreader on the wall of all the main teaching rooms).
It will be your duty to ensure that you register your attendance by ‘tapping in,’ and you will be able to see your attendance record online after you have done so. You may be requested to utilize a hand-held device in rooms with no fixed reader, which will be handed around the class to swipe your card.
Attendance monitoring professionals will check your attendance ‘log’ to determine whether you seem to be experiencing difficulties getting to and from class. If we are worried about this, you may get an email, a text message, or a phone call to ask how you are doing and to provide assistance and guidance if you need it. May also warn you of the dangers you expose yourself to by failing to attend lessons.
Please take notice of the following critical points:
- You may enter the classroom up to 10 minutes before the scheduled start time; however, if you enter the classroom more than 10 minutes before the scheduled start time, you will record your attendance at the incorrect session.
- You do not need to press your card again; instead, you need to tap it once.
- If you arrive late to class, you will record your attendance but will show a ‘late’ flag next to your name on your record. Please remember that you may be unable to participate in specific sessions because some courses have limited tolerance for late attendance, and others have a high tolerance. The staff member responsible for delivering your class should inform you of the policies regarding late arrivals.
- Similarly, suppose you are in the same room for two sessions in succession, and they are listed on your schedule as different events. In that case, you must tap in again at the beginning of the second session to register your attendance at that particular event.
Alwaysschool admissionssessions are listed on your calendar whenever feasible; if you change group sessions, your swipes will not match the events shown on your timetable, and your attendance percentage will be erroneous.If you are going to be absent from class, you should submit an absence request using the student portal.
