The attendance module and block are designed to facilitate keeping an attendance log of the students. The instructor can set the frequency of their classes (# of days per week & length of course) or create specific sessions. To take attendance, the instructor clicks on the "Update Attendance" button and is presented with a list of all the students in that course, along with configurable options and a Remarks textbox (The default options provided are: Present, Absent, Late & Excused). Instructors can download the attendance for their course in Excel format or text format.
Attendance sessions can also be configured to allow students to submit their record.
