Attendance Record

According to article (69) of bylaws, each staff member is accountable to record the student attendance and to check the percentage of absence for critical absence cases of 10%,20% and 30%. A warning has to be issued for the mentioned cases by the registration department based on the record submitted by the staff member.

The following computation shows how to calculate the percentage (%) of absence based on a 14 -16 weeks semester (Likewise, one needs to find the number of weeks per semester according to the academic calendar):

Suppose a staff teaches 3 contact hours/ week then the total hours/semester =3x15= 45hrs% absence= (No of hours of absence /total hours per semester) =No of Absence Hours Percentage
4.5 or 5 Hours (4.5÷45) = 10%
9 Hours (9÷45) = 20%
15 Hours or more (15÷45) = 30% (In this case the student will not be allowed to sit for the final exam he will be in Debar List).
