Hello All,

I'm wondering if any of your institutions monitor logon/logoff time for
attendance/holiday/sick leave violations. I'm not looking for a technical
answer, just whether or not your schools do this.

I'm trying to bring some support documents to the table so we can make an
educated decision on if it's something we want to pursue. My feeling is
that this is VERY unusual for HigherED, but links to policies or an email
(with a yes/no) would be much appreciated.

If you like I can compile my responses (anonymously) and repost to the
list if there's any interest.

This is just a followup to my original mail. All replies, save one, were
posted to the list. They were unanimously "no". Since there aren't any
"best practices" or obvious evidence of other schools doing this, the
internal auditor has thankfully withdrawn his request.

To followup on the technical portion. If we were forced into doing this, I
was going to suggest something like <http://www.authenware.com/> as one
piece of the puzzle. That plus some network analysis and mobile device
tracking would hopefully give us at least an understanding if they even
came on campus.
