The attendance module and block are designed to allow instructors of a course keep an attendance log of the students in their courses. The instructor will setup the frequency of his classes (# of days per week & length of course) and the attendance is ready for use. 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 4 options: Present, Absent, Late & Excused, with a Remarks textbox. Instructors can download the attendance for their course in Excel format or text format.
Only the instructor can update the attendance data. However, a student gets to see his attendance record.

Sets

This plugin is part of set Attendance.

    HI Stephen, there was an issue with the upgrade scripts between the different plugin versions - I've just re-published all plugins for 2.4 and higher to prevent this - if you grab the latest version it should sort that for you. Thanks!

    dear Dan, can you please help me. I want to add students id in the list of students when taking attendance.

    Hi Deepak, You might be able to achieve what you want by going to admin > users > permissions > user policies and setting the "show user identity" option to include the students idnumber but that will change a number of reports within Moodle.

    If that doesn't work and you are looking for development support you could ask for help in the forums or contract a developer or Moodle Partner to help further.

    I have the latest version of the attendance module installed and it has been running smoothly until today. When ever I click on the individual students to get their individual attendance report I get a duplicate records.

    Please Help

    Hi Kartheek - please make sure you have the latest version installed - this sounds a lot like this issue which has already been fixed:

    Hi,

    Hi Manuel - I haven't seen that before, can you check your server error logs to see if any other more specific information is provided? - you could also try elevating your debugging levels:

    Hi Dan.
    Server logs doesn't show any error and debugging doesn't show any relevant message.

    Hi Manuel, I can help any further without more information sorry - I can't reproduce this and there isn't enough information here for me to diagnose. If you manage to get any more detailed error message reporting let me know.

    Hello:

    First, thank you for this very useful module! Second, the Attendance Report page has a table layout and readability problem, especially when viewed in the Student role. Present across Firefox, IE, Chrome, and Safari browsers for PC. Have mod_attendance version 2014112001 installed in Moodle 2.7.

    When viewed in an Administrator or Teacher role, the Attendance Report columns Date and Time are too narrow to easily read their content while the columns Type and Description are excessively wide.

    When viewed in Student role, the Attendance Report columns Date, Status, and Remarks are only one character wide (very difficult to read) while the column Description occupies 80% of the table width.

    Is there an easy CSS style sheet fix to these table column width problems? Thanks!

    Is there any way to get a resume report that shows only a resume of all sessions including a kind of percentage based on the grades of the acronyms?

    @Stephen, I haven't seen that particular issue before - if someone else provides a patch that improves this I'd be happy to add it to the codebase. It would also be great if you could take a screenshot of the issue and add a bug with the details here:
    https://github.com/danmarsden/moodle-mod_attendance/issues

    @Antonio I'm not exactly sure what you are looking for there - feel free to create a bug in github with a mockup of what you are looking for - see the following issues for mockups of other reports people have requested but have not been implemented at this stage:

    Hi Dan,

    I sent you a pull request with a proposed code for a summary report. It's similar to the regression relative to Moodle 1.9 mentioned on
    https://github.com/danmarsden/moodle-mod_attendance/issues/38 but without sessions details. In fact it adds two percentage columns, one relative to the partial grade and another relative to the max grade.

    Hello all,
    I installed attendance module in moodle 2.8 version and I got this error - " String [export,mod_quiz] is deprecated. Either you should no longer be using that string, or the string has been incorrectly deprecated, in which case you should report this as a bug. Please refer to https://docs.moodle.org/dev/String_deprecation " . It would be much helpful if anyone Could resolve this issue. Thank you.

    Hi Sirisha, I pushed a fix for that into the github repo last week - feel free to get the latest code from there. I'll update the version in the plugins db sometime soon.
