How to add attendance
Step1: The first step to add attendance is to add attendance module to the course. Go to the course that you want to add attendance and turn editing on. Click “add activity” button of the top section and select attendance activity and click “add”.
If you already have an attendance module in your, skip to step 3
Step2: In the attendance settings, select “yes” for official and “none” for grade. You may also make this attendance module "unofficial" by selecting "No". This means the attendance records will not show up on student's records such as report card, attendance reports etc. Unofficial attendance may be useful for clubs or tutoring courses. When done, click on "Save & display"
Step3: Add “sessions” by following the steps indicated on the screenshot below. Since you are already in the course, #1 below is just to double check if you are in the right course. You can create sessions for all or one period of the course. Each period will have a separate attendance session.
Any attendance sessions added by mistake can be deleted by going to the "Sessions" tab. Simply select the attendance session you want to delete and go to the bottom of the page and select "Delete" from drop down menu.
If an enrolled student does not show up on attendance list, this may mean the student's enrollment date has ended. You may check and update students' enrollment end dates via course participants.
Attendance reports can be accessed via School>Attendance quick menu.
There are 4 different types of attendance reports: Cumulative Attendance Report shows the number of total statuses (present, tardy, absent etc) within selected dates. Daily report shows the students attendance status on a selected day by period. Class monitor shows the list teachers and their periods they are required to take attendance. Each box represent a period or the periods (if multiple throughout the week) with a color code and number of students whose attendance have been recorded. Student monitor shows the daily attendance status of students for each period. This report is interactive where the admins (or attendance coordinator) can click on the box and change/update the attendance.
