Help our School - Can this product help us track participation in our extra curricular school activities?


I really hope you can help. My name is Sean Hollingworth and I work for Ecclesfield Secondary School in Sheffield, England. We are currently seeking a simple, user friendly way of tracking student participation in our extracurricular activities. I have been looking for a product that may be able to help us do this and think that the ODK package may be able to help.

Put simply, we offer a variety of clubs at lunch time and after school. We need a system to record the students that attend each club and keep a record of attendance in order to identify any patterns which may allow us to better engage our students into taking part in extracurricular activities.
For example - Our table tennis club runs on Tuesday lunch times and is open to all students -
one week there may be 6 students who attend. Their attendance needs to be recorded by date.
The following week the same 6 students may attend, plus 4 more new students. Again the attendance needs to be recorded - 6 will have attended 2 sessions, 4 will have attended just the one.
The week after, there may only be 2 students attend, both of which are new students. Again their attendance needs recording.
At the end of each term, we would like to be able to analyse who has attended, how often they have attended and be able to split that data between year groups and gender etc...

Would the ODK system allow our staff to record attendance to their clubs and maintain an up to date record of who has attended and when?

Any help or advice you could give would be greatly received.

Thank you in advance,
