Hello Everyone,

I would love to get some suggestions on how to ensure that everyone who uses our tutoring services signs in.  Here is the context:


*         We have 'drop-in' tutoring rooms at various locations around campus.   These discipline-specific rooms are staffed by peer tutors and, sometimes, degreed professional learning specialists.  Any student may come to these rooms during open hours to ask for help.

*         We have sign-in clipboards that sit on a table near the entry way to the rooms.

*         The tutors know that we expect them to have every user sign in.

*         Tutors generally agree that many users do not sign in.

*         These rooms get very busy, sometimes with a 10:1, or greater, student: tutor ratio, so it is understandable that tutors sometimes fail to have users sign in during peak times.

*         There is not funding to have someone whose sole job is to make sure that users sign in.

*         We have asked the university for a swipe system, but that is still at least a couple years out.

*         We have been advised that putting some kind of a stand in the hallway outside of the room, or posting anything on the hallway walls, is a fire hazard.

Usage data is extremely important at our university so we would benefit greatly from capturing as many sign ins as possible.

All input will be appreciated!

Sam
