In this paper, we propose a biometric-based attendance system for course lecture. The proposal system takes attendance during lecture periods automatically using student identification method. Efforts in this work recorded 94% success rate for eight students who participated in the study. Biometrics based attendance system produced approximately 3.8 seconds execution time on the average while the manual method of attendance produced approximately 17.8 seconds execution time on the average. Results of the biometric based attendance system confirm improved performance as compared to the manual method of attendance. Continuous observation improved the performance.
