If you forget to tap in
If you forget to tap in at the start of the class but you attended the event, tap in as soon as possible as the swipe will still be registered against your record. Although your attendance will not be amended, your department will be able to look up the record and see the late swipe if they have any queries around your attendance.
You must not tap in for someone who isn't attending the class and you must not tap in if you then immediately leave the teaching event. If you do this then disciplinary action may be taken against you, and anyone else whose card you have used.
For further information about the University’s rules and its procedures for dealing with allegations of breaches of the Code of Conduct, see our Conduct Regulations.
Viewing your attendance
During the year you will be able to view your attendance on the Learner Engagement Activity Portal (LEAP), and also see detailed attendance data on My Essex. If you have a question about your attendance record, contact your department in the first instance.
