You can take attendance in one of two ways: manually or by student check-in. You can only use one method for a particular class period, but can choose for each session. Before you use either method, however, you must select the time you are taking attendance for. The Dialog box at the top defaults to the current time, but selecting Custom allows you to input attendance for a past or future date and time.
If you've chosen the List display option, a full list of students will be displayed, as well as a space for the Session Title to be edited to include a date or specific session name. Simply mark whether each student is absent or present (or any other statuses your class uses as relevant.)
You can also create comments for an individual’s attendance by clicking the comment bubble for their name at the far right, which will turn into a comment field.
You also have the option to take attendance with any of the three manual settings from this screen using the tabs at the top of the screen:
For the One By One Setting, this list will be replaced by a space where each student will appear individually. Professors can toggle back and forth using the arrow buttons:
For Accessibility Mode, the screen shows the list of students in alphabetical order, with a dropdown menu of statuses and an extended comment box for each.
When attendance is complete in any mode, click on ‘Submit Attendance’ to submit the current session. Whatever method you use, you'll get a notification that your attendance has been submitted and your Grade Center column will be updated accordingly
If you don't want to have to take attendance yourself, you can have the students check in from any device with a web browser. You cannot combine manual and student check-in attendance for the same class period. As students can check in from anywhere, we recommend that you activate the PIN function if you intend to have students check in..
To start the check-in, click on the “Check-In” tab.
There, click the Start Check In button.
Check-in will run until you end it by clicking the ‘End Check In’ button. If you selected the PIN option, the PIN for this session will be automatically generated on this page as well. This PIN is randomly generated for each new session; students cannot check in with a PIN from a previous session.
