Abstract : Most educational institutionsâ€™ administrators are concerned about student irregular attendance. Truancies can affect student overall academic performance. The conventional method of taking attendance by calling names or signing on paper is very time consuming and insecure, hence inefficient. Therefore, RFID-based student attendance system is required to assist the faculty and the lecturer for this time-consuming process. The R-BASAS device is designed to collect and manage studentâ€™s attendance records from RFID devices installed in a class rooms. Based on the verification of student identification at the entrances system, the RFID tag can be embedded in the ID card of the individual. First to activate a new session (hour) the teacher swipes her RFID tag this marks a new attendance session during which the students can swipe once to increment their attendance. This study was conducted for sixteen (16) students, and reveals that the average execution time for the RFID based attendance system reduced to 3.85secs as against the manual system which takes and average of 17.26secs. The RFID module operate in 125Khz range, when a tag passes through its vicinity, the module senses its presence and extracts its unique serial number and passes this code into microcontroller which matches the code to the correct person and increments the attendance of the particular person.
