Biometrics streamlines exams

February 2019 Education (Industry), Access Control & Identity Management

Powell Tronics’ in-house-developed time and attendance system, ATOM, enhances security by implementing an effective access control system allowing education institutions to accurately regulate and manage exactly who is accessing the premises or campus and when they are being utilised.

“We focus on client-driven solutions that are tailored to the higher learning facility or educational campuses that improve the learning experience for students and offer valuable management tools to administrators and educators,” says John Powell, MD of Powell Tronics. “This, for me, was the clear message that came out of the successful annual CAMPROSA conference held at the Spier Wine Farm in September 2018.”

PT-ROLLCALL is a mobile solution for educators to streamline examination attendance. Using the IDEMIA V2 biometric-enabled tablet, education facilities are able to verify student identities in order to reduce exam fraud. The solution can also be used as a mobile access point to eliminate the threat of disruption, which has led to high costs incurred by universities in the past, in some cases rescheduling examinations due to disruptive behaviour.

PT-ROLLCALL optimises portable biometrics using fully integrated software to link all necessary data from various enterprise databases within the institutions. It ensures the correct student is in the right location to take the appropriate examination that is being invigilated by the appropriate invigilator.

PT-ROLLCALL verifies that all the boxes are ticked before student examinations start and eliminates exam fraud in its tracks. The University of Cape Town, which actively uses the solution for examination requirements, also uses the software on the tablet as a form of access control at selected venues. Students were able to get onto campus, but when it comes to seeking access to exam venues, they had to present their fingerprint for verification in order to write their particular exam.
