This paper describes the development of Portable Examination Attendance System (PEAS) based on RFlD technology. With these devices, we hope we can reduce the risks of attendance losses due to traditional procedures that required each of students to write the personal and subject information on a sheet of paper. Unfortunately, the problem might occurred during the examination officers collect the attendance paper especially when there are more than one section and different subject attended to take the final examination at the respective time. The purpose of Portable Examination Attendance System is to assist the examination officer to perform and validate the student attendance status when required at anytime and everywhere. The main aim of this project is track record the student attendance using the contactless student card ID through RFID readers that operates at 13.56 Mhz. This paper also describe on previous research and the developing process which involves 5 main phase including preliminary investigation, analysis, designation, implementation, maintenance and testing. The database system is designed using the Microsoft Access containing the student information and installed in the Portable Digital Assistant (PDA) that directly connected from the card reader. The system is also providing a Graphical User Interface (GUI) as the interface between user and database system.
