Attendance/Roll Call Tool

Attendance/Roll Call Tool

Ideal for smaller, face-to-face classes where you already take attendance.

If using the Attendance tool to meet Financial Aid requirements:

  • At a minimum, take attendance every class meeting until every student has been accounted for in at least one class session. Once you have recorded that all students have attended at least one class session, you no longer need to record attendance for the purpose of the financial aid requirement.

Note: Students do not see a list of dates and whether they were present or not – just the final score.

1. In the course navigation, click the Attendance link.

Click Attendance Link

2. The first time you access the tool it will ask you to share information with the application- you must accept to use the tool. No private data is shared.

3. The List view appears when you open Roll Call. You can take attendance by toggling the correct mark for each student [1]:

  • The green check mark icon indicates the student is present and on time.
  • The red X icon indicates the student is not present.
  • The yellow clock icon indicates the student is late.

You can also take attendance by clicking the Mark All Present button [2].
