Manual checking of attendance may lead to inconsistency of data inputs and may generate unreliable attendance result. Hence, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system has been developed to solve this problem, but it allows only checking student’s attendance as they enter and exit the school premise only. In consequence, teachers in every subject still need to check and monitor students’ attendance manually. Nevertheless, due to a usual large number of students entering and existing the school premise as they are tapping their RFID card, there is always a possibility of proxy attendance. Thus, Mobile-Based Attendance Monitoring System Using Face Tagging Technology (MBAMSUFTT) was developed to provide an attendance monitoring system through biometric authentication such as face recognition. The system serves as a tool for teachers to check and monitor student’s attendance in most reliable and accurate way using their smart phones. The MBAMSUFTT generates attendance report intended for close monitoring and printing of student’s attendance result. But the reliability of the attendance result (output) of the system depends on the quality of picture (input) sent by the user. Camera specification, ambiance lighting condition, and proper position of students while taking photo is exclusively required. The server and the mobile part can only run together if Wireless Fidelity is on, otherwise, monitoring will not be executed.
As a developmental research, this study used the Agile Model based on System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) intended for building a project that can adapt to change requests quickly. The MBAMSUFTT was evaluated based on the ISO/IEC 25010; MBAMSUFTT’s software quality characteristics by the IT experts, and its functionality, performance efficiency, and usability by the teachers. The analysis of the data revealed that the MBAMSUFTT serves its intended purpose in checking and monitoring students’ attendance per subject area with more accurate and reliable attendance results and has also met the ISO software quality standards.
