Background of the Study

Attendance is one of the important factors in many institutions and organization that need to be followed by people. It is highly important for one organization in order to maintain their performance standards. Old conventional methods for employees’ attendance are still used by most of the universities or schools like Cabatacan National School in which employee still using the manual DTR that enable them to cheat their own time of arrival and departure of the said institution. As this method is used, many employees are helping their friends by signing in their attendance in case of their absent in the institute.
In this paper we review the various computerized system which is being developed by using different techniques. Based on this review a new approach for employee attendance is proposed by using biometric device to be used for various schools or academic institutes. Biometric technologies is the fingerprint recognition system; by placing a finger on the scanner, it allows the person to time in or out and ensures that employees cannot time in for one another, thereby preventing employee time theft. In other words, instead of requiring personal identification cards, keys or passwords of other person, biometrics can identify fingerprints of an individual for easy and convenient verification.  
After having these issues in mind we develop a Biometric Attendance Monitoring System or simply called BAMS which serves as an alternate for traditional manual signing process and automates the whole process of taking attendance and maintaining it.
The researcher’s main focus is to come up with a better, more effective and reliable system that would lessen the problem that encountered by the Faculty and staff of the Cabatacan National High School. Because aside from the monthly report, BAMS feature shows the attendance of the individual employee which is absent or late on that particular day, monitor the productivity...
