The Attendance module is designed for teachers to be able take attendance during class, and for students to be able to view their own attendance record. A teacher can mark the attendance status of a student as “Present”, “Absent”, “Late”, or “Excused“. These status descriptions are configurable, and more can be added. The teacher adds Attendance as an activity of a course, and then sets up the sessions whose attendance is to be tracked. The Attendance module can generate reports for either the entire class or for individual students. Students may also see their own attendance record if the activity is not hidden.
Step 1 Editing
Login to course and Turn editing on, located in Course administration.
Step 2 Add
Click on the “Add an activity or resource” . There is a pop-up window that will have all the activities and resources listed.
Step 3 General
Give a name and total points allowed for the whole course.
Step 4 Group Mode
When course group mode is turned on, the group mode can be one of three levels: No groups, Separate groups or Visible groups.
Step 5 Restrict access settings
The restrict access section asks for the conditions when the activity (or resource) should be visible. This can be based upon dates, and/or score ranges of other activities and/or if other activities are considered completed. Note that ALL access restrictions (date, grade condition, activity completion condition) have to be met in order for the activity to be made available.
The Access from date determines the day, month and year students may first access the activity via the assignment name link on the course page. To activate this option, click in the Enable check-box to add a tick.
This setting determines any grade conditions which must be met in order for students to access the activity. Multiple grade conditions may be set using the 'Add 2 grade conditions to form' button. If there are multiple completion conditions applied to an activity, it will only be accessible to students when all grade conditions are met.
Before activity can be accessed
Before a student has fulfilled the the Grade Conditions specified above and the activity is still inaccessible to them, you can choose whether to show the activity grayed-out on the course page with the grade conditions listed (restriction information) or to hide the activity from student view entirely.
