Tom Nash reports:

Nearly 60 percent of the 4,047 students targeted for a Virginia Commonwealth University Wi-Fi tracking pilot program refused to participate, according to documents released by VCU.

The university began tracking attendance through the Wi-Fi on students’ phones and other devices in November after entering a $96,000, one-year agreement with vendor Degree Analytics.

VCU is using the software as part of a pilot program called RAM Attend.
