ATLAS Exam Attendance

The ATLAS Exam Attendance application offers professors and other unit members a check-in interface that will both save time for exam proctors and ensure the identity of students taking an exam. Combining information from the course roster with the student’s i-card, checking in and out of an exam just became as simple as a card swipe.

Services for IT Pros

Our team maintains a few applications that may be of use to other IT Pros on campus. For more information about these applications, please contact atlas-apps@illinois.edu.

  • SQL Active Directory Populator

    This utility is capable of maintaining the membership of one or more AD groups based on campus data. Do you need departmental access groups to be automatically maintained? If so, this tool may be of use.

  • Roster Service

    Do you maintain an application that needs course rosters? This web service may be available for approved users to provide your application with XML or JSON formatted course roster data.

  • ATLAS Directory Profiles

    ATLAS Directory Profiles are available via a collection of XML feeds. This information can be processed by external applications (or even just transformed via XSLT) to generate content to display on a departmental website.
