Manage Attendance

Instructors can use attendance data as part of their students’ overall grades. Once you are on the Attendance page, marking student attendance is the same regardless of whether you are using the Original or Ultra course view. In addition to marking attendance, you can view attendance history, and create, edit, and delete meetings.

Mark and Grade Attendance

This tool allows instructors to track the number of class meetings students have attended, arrived late or missed. If made available, students can also review any grades connected to their attendance and track their progress. Instructors can use attendance as part of grade calculations similiar to an assignment grade column.
