Abstract:

This study aimed to develop a Student Monitoring System using low frequency Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Short Messaging Service (SMS) in order to keep track of the students within the school premises. A computer program is to be developed to interact with the system. A series of tests was conducted to prove the accuracy of the entire system. With the aid of Chi-square test, the researcher determined the significant difference between the observed and expected data. The developed software can capture and record the name, entry and exit time of the students. Moreover, the developed software can monitor the entry and exit time, account balance and schedules of current classes of the student thru Short Messaging Service (SMS). Future studies related to the topic may focus on the use of high frequency radio frequency (RF) reader instead of low frequency radio frequency (RF) reader. This will facilitate convenience to the students by just wearing or hanging the identification card with RF tag every time the student enters and exits the school premises.
