In many tertiary institutions in Ghana such as Christian Service University the attendance of students is very important factor since it forms part of the students assessment and evaluation. It has therefore become imperative that proper measures should be put in place to ensure that no student signs for another. It has been observed that at Christian Service University College lecturers sometimes give the attendance book to students to sign without actually supervising them to see whether the right student is signing or making sure that no student signs for another. Moreover, if a lecturer wants to supervise the signing of the attendance book to make sure that the right student is signing and no student signs for a friend then the lecturer may end up by wasting a significant amount of the lecture period on the signing supervision. Furthermore, in the larger classes lecturers sometimes use their own ideology and principles to award the attendance marks (5%) that counts towards continuous assessment for students because they find counting each individual students attendance laborious, boring and even error prone. This means that the 5% marks obtained by students from attendance sometimes does not give a true picture about the student and therefore proper measures should be implemented to eradicate some of these irregularities in students attendance at Christian Service University College and all other institutions in which the attendance forms part of the assessment and evaluation. In view of this a fingerprint attendance system is proposed to Christian Service University College to record students attendance to help them improve the continuous assessment. The introduction of this proposed system for students attendance at Christian Service University College is expected to create room for full participation of all the eligible students, eliminate multiple signing and also increase the confidence of students in the assessment process
