Automated Attendance Accounting System; Patent Application.
Chapman, Carl P.; And Others
An automated accounting system, useful for applying data to a computer from a multiplicity of terminals, has the potential of replacing the manual attendance accounting system now employed in schools. The inventors claim that such a sophisticated system with terminals in the classrooms would enable school administrators not only to monitor simple attendance, but to obtain a variety of additional information on the student body. They also contend that this type of automated system would preclude the need for governmental auditing procedures because of the inherent accuracy of the system design. Over 75% of this application consists of technical descriptions and diagrams of the invention. (MC)
