TRACK ATTENDANCE

If you have the Attendance Add-On, you can keep track of people attending a facilitated or offline course. The add-on consists of an Activity and a Block. Note that you can only add one Attendance activity per course.


Before You Begin


Begin


Manage Activities tab

Add Block drop-down box

Session Date: Select the start date of your course (the first day of class)
Session End Date: Select the last day of class (the last day you want to take attendance).
Session Days: Select the days of the week when your class will meet (for example, Monday/Wednesday/Friday).
Frequency: If your class will meet every week, select 1; if it will meet every other week, select 2; every 3rd week, select 3, etc.

If you’re only taking attendance on a particular day, you only need to set that day in the Session Date field.

Example: Session One

IMPORTANT: After you take attendance, students logging in can see their own results. It’s a good idea to create a test student account on your campus so you can determine if you want your students to see this data. If not, you can hide the block, place it on a page students don’t have access to (for example, an Admin page) or click the Assign Roles icon in editing move and Override Permissions for the Student Role.
