Cutting-edge student tracking software to simplify time and attendance management for college and university teachers
Top Hat’s intuitive attendance system allows instructors to accurately verify whether a student is physically present in class. As an educator, you can easily track your class’s attendance by prompting students to sign in on their devices using a unique code, and auto-assign grades for attendance. Top Hat uses proprietary market-leading technology—a combination of GPS location and Bluetooth—to verify the physical location of students, ensuring that only those students attending get accurately counted. For full flexibility, there is extra functionality to approve absence (or excuse tardy students.) No more Excel, sign-in sheets, or ID cards to scan.
Unlike older education technology, Top Hat’s cloud based SaaS attendance tracker syncs directly with the devices students already own and use, such as tablets including iPads, phones and laptops. There’s no need for students to purchase additional hardware. Simply download our student response system and away you go.
It’s hard for teachers to lecture to a class full of students who aren’t paying attention. As instructors move to incorporate different strategies in their learning environments, the need for technology grows. Top Hat transforms any smartphone, laptop or tablet, enabling professors to teach in an engaging learning environment.

When you begin your class you have the option to take secure attendance, which is tracked using Top Hat’s proprietary software. You can opt to take secure attendance which checks to see whether a student is present in class using proximity detection. Regardless of how to wish to take attendance, students are sent a code that must be entered into the app to effectively track attendance.
