Attendance is one of the major factors for measuring eligibility, punctuality and commitment to the institution. To keep and manage the attendance records efficiently is very important for the assessment of students and employees. In today's world, paper based attendance marking system is used in educational institutes where the teacher calls out students roll numbers. This is a manual process which is prone to many human errors and very time consuming for the both students as well as teachers during conducting the classes. Similarly, the management of staff's attendance record daily and generating monthly/ annual report using manual computational process has become a difficult challenge. For the stated reasons, an efficient Web-based application is designed to track student’s activity in each class and also monitor the check-in and check-out time of each employee through fingerprint verification. This system consists of several modules: student’s attendance monitoring and management system, class routine management system, student’s information management system, employee’s attendance and leave management system, and employee’s information management system. The developed dynamic database stores the necessary data and information of each students and employees. This application takes employee’s attendance using fingerprint scanning devices and also takes student’s attendance of each courses of a specific department electronically, the records of the attendance are storing in the database. The system is implemented using the power of Laravel Framework, JavaScript is added to the application to improve the use of the system, and MySQL is used for the application database. Hardware level programming is performed to interface the fingerprint devices with our application. Insertions, deletions, and changes of data in the system can do straightforward via the designed GUI without interacting with the tables. This system is able to save valuable time of students as well as teachers for conducting the classes also save time to monitor check-in time, check-out time, working hour, and absent days of each employee. As a result, we can perform attendance management and monitoring related tasks like automated course-wise daily attendance report generation, automated course-wise semester attendance report generation, attendance report of a specific student, dynamic class routine preparation, daily/ weekly/ monthly/ half-yearly/ annual attendance and leave report generation of each employee etc. accurately and efficiently without any hassle. The test case of the system exposed that the system is working efficiently and is ready to use for the university or any similar academic institutions.
