BioSig-ID is being implemented at UMKC beginning in fully online programs. Training is available for all faculty in advance of the integration of BioSig-ID into their courses. Once BioSig-ID is integrated, faculty will experience little to no impact on their teaching.
Students will be introduced to BioSig-ID through a dedicated BioSig Enrollment course. This is a central location to explain BioSig-ID for new students and take care of the initial enrollment. Students will be added to the BioSig Enrollment course three weeks before the start of term to allow ample time for enrollment and authentication practice. If students do not register through the BioSig Enrollment course, they will be prompted to enroll the first time they try to access their live Blackboard course. Student will not be able to access the course without first successfully validating with BioSig-ID.
Student support for using BioSig-ID will be available 24/7 through the ITS Help Desk. There will be no additional cost to the students using BioSig-ID.
Academic Attendance Report Overview
Upon request, instructors can receive an attendance report of all BioSig activity in their course(s). This report:
- Provides a grid-like overview of student attendance / activity by day
- Captures the student’s BioSig-ID enrollment / validation status
- Is prepared in an easy to read visual format; date by course and active students
Potential uses for the report include:
- Compare the number of students registered to inactive students
- Connect attendance to important academic and student services dates
- Identify students that may have a password challenge
To request an attendance report for your course, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “BioSig Attendance Report Request.”
Sample Report and Legend
By default, all quizzes and tests are “gated” with BioSig-ID. This means that at the start of each test, students will be prompted to validate with their password before the test begins. If you would like to disable the intercept feature on individual tests or quizzes, this video demonstrates how.
Instructors do not need to authenticate with BioSig-ID, but if you are curious, you can test drive BioSig at biosig-id.com/take-the-test-drive
These helpful information sheets can be provided to students or other interested parties.
