Sign In Sheet block allows you to generate attendance / signature lists for your students.

Each of the students which are currently added to a course page will have their name and blank line which allows them to sign their name to indicate that they attended a class. This physical sign in is requirement which is needed in some institutes. 

Additional information about the course name and the current date is added to the top of the sheet, allowing for easy tracking of printed lists.

You can easily order by First name or Last Name and filter by Course Groups that have been defined on your course page.

- Quickly print signature sheets

- Filter by groups

- Print additional empty spaces (new in 1.6)

- New update includes spanish translation!

    Great plugin guys!
    Is there a way to add additional blank lines to the sign in sheet so we can have students sign in if they are not already a user in the course?
    Also, is there any way to add other pre-populated data to the columns? For example their username?

    This add-on is great smile I just translated it in AMOS for Mexican spanish users.

    I think it would be even better if a couple of hard-wired English language strings were declared as variables, so that AMOS users would be able to translate them:

    Within the produced table with the student names, there are the English words 'Name' and 'Signature' just before the first student name listed.

    Being a non-programmer, I would dare to say that the needed change should be small and the benefit for users of Moodle translations would be great.

    Thanks for a nice and useful add-on.

    I am using your add-on with my undergrad students. I thought that maybe it might be even better if the sheet printed the filter being used (for example, we use the teacher names for the name of the groups within a course with several visible groups).

    Thanks again for making this useful add-on.

    Hi Kyle,

    Today I tried to update the plugin version from within my University 2.6 server.

    When it tried to download I got :

    Oops! It did it again

    Moodle deployment utility had a trouble with your request. See the docs page and the debugging information for more details.

    exception 'zip_exception' with message 'Invalid structure of the zip package' in mdeploy.php:1422
    Stack trace:
    #0 mdeploy.php(805): worker->unzip_plugin('/aplicaciones/m...', '/aplicaciones/w...', '/aplicaciones/w...', '/aplicaciones/m...')
    #1 mdeploy.php(1535): worker->execute()
    #2 {main}

    I currently do not have access to the server file system (I can not manually delete the block).

    There is no Docs page currently at

    I will greatly appreciatte any help.

    Hi Kyle,
    The current download package has an extra folder (_MACOXX) besides the (signinsheet) real folder. Maybe that is the problem ?

    Kyle, Daniel,

    Thank you for this - this is a great plugin.

    A suggestion: it would be great if you could also filter by role so that only students are printed on the list. A simple work around for this of course is to make a group containing only students, but it might be something to consider for future updates.

    Thank you

    This is a terrific plugin!
    Is there a way to remove the 'teacher' name from showing up on the sign in sheet?
