Reasons to track attendance on regular intervals
- Helps track students performance
Tracking an individual student’s progress in a class of more than 20 students is a difficult task. Generally, a class is a mix of differently performing students where some are par the excellence level whereas some fall in crack even with impeccable guidance.
Therefore, the instructor should have an aptly designed system to track students’ progress, given that every martial arts form demands different progress tracking parameters. In BJJ and Judo, students’ performance is tracked based on their performance on Mat, whereas for other martial arts forms, consider the time for which students are trained as the indicator of overall progress.
Therefore, regardless of which martial arts form requires what parameters of progress tracking, OnMat has everything. It provides a brief database analysis comprising of numbers of classes attended by individual students, the number of hours spent practicing the belt, and so on.
- Identifies students who are facing a hard time
The detailed analysis of attendance tracking also helps instructors know which member is not attending classes at all or which member has not been attending since the registration has been done.
In the long run, such detailed analysis will help instructors get a hold on worsening student’s behavior and taking necessary action to motivate them to attend the classes. The fact that the reason behind non-attendance could be any, including financial issues, personal reasons, injuries, lost interest in sports, etc., the instructor can talk to the individual student and motivate them to give it a chance.
A healthy and motivational talk with the instructor will help students break the traps built due to multiple peers and start attending classes for good. But this will only happen if the instructors will have good attendance tracking software in their hands.
- Gives insights into instructors’ punctuality
Apart from insights into students’ presence and absence, instructors’ presence and absence also matter. The data helps you understand the instructors’ behavior for the betterment of your institute and its performance.
Suppose the instructors of your academy are not taking regular classes and leaving most of the classes unattended. In that case, this behavior could harm your academy’s image and force parents to take out their children to enroll them in any other academy.
Moreover, the instructors’ attendance data will also help you optimize the staff schedule and run a sustainable business.
