Biometric Methods

Fingerprint scanner“Biometric” comes from two words meaning “life” and “measure” – we measure something that is a unique part of your living being like fingerprints or the pattern of your iris, inside your eye. Think of how our lunch system at school works.

Biometric methods are still controversial with some people – they may be worried that the government or police might get access to the records.

The hardware is more expensive than the other systems and there is still the question of what to do if the ICT system fails.

There’s nothing for students to loose, though, and no one can fake your mark on the register for you, either. This is another system with ‘real-time’ registration, meaning that the data is recorded the second you scan in and can be analysed immediately.
