The Positive Impact of taking Attendance, using VAWSUM.
“Eighty percent of the Achievement is Showing Up” – Woody AllenA number of studies have found some form of positive correlation between performance and showing up. Success and discipline are proportionating to one another. One cannot succeed unless that person is regular in his/her work.Such has been the case in education as well. Studies say that the school with a higher rate of attendance has been found to have better performance. Over the years, schools have tried adapting to various ways in order to reduce absenteeism and it has been noticed, that the schools that could do so have had an upward curve as far as performance is concerned.Many schools across India are strengthening their class attendance policies by using VAWSUM. VAWSUM has been the cornerstone of the success of most schools. the attendance module of the app has revolutionized the ways of taking attendance. When a teacher takes attendance using VAWSUM, the parent of the child gets notified there and then. As a result, there is very little provision for the child, not to be present (without a valid reason), as he/she knows that his/her parents would be notified. This results in an increase in attendance. When a child is present in the school, his/her class involvement increases and this enhances the growth of the child. This method of taking attendance promotes presenteeism as part of the discourse of learners.“I love this feature of the app as this helps me being informed whether my child actually goes to school or not. I will tell about this feature to all of my friends.” – quoted one parent, when asked about this feature of the app. Now the point to be noted here is, “…. I will tell about this feature to all of my friends.”. This means that the parents, indirectly, becomes the ambassadors the school and this helps in the branding of the school. As more people get to know about the school, more students would seek admission and thus, helping in the expansion on the school.The effect of this attendance module on schools has been huge. Students started coming to school regularly, ON TIME, schools started to have a better turnover during admission and this, enhances the parent-teacher communication. VAWSUM has really been a perfect foundation, helping in the growth and enhancement of each and every student.
