Tracking student attendance

An instructor can use the grade book to track student late arrivals and attendance by using the attendance page. To open the attendance page, click the attendance button on the grade book main page.

The attendance form lists students enrolled in the class. The top of the form shows the current date. To mark an absence or tardy for a different date, use the pull down menus to select the date to record attendance or late arrivals for.

To mark a late or absent student, click the check-box to the right of the student name in the correct column.

Once all student absence or late arrivals are recorded for the selected date, click on the submit button to save the information. Absences and late arrival totals show up on the grade book main page for all students.
