Within Edsby, schools can choose to take attendance in any or all classes. Whether or not attendance tools are available within any class, and whether teachers will be prompted with an attendance sheet on any particular calendar day, depend on two settings in the Class Period details.
Setting attendance for a class period
To enable attendance for a class period:
- In Twine, use the side navigation to select Scheduling > Courses (1, 2, below)
- Select the Subject, Course and Class period of interest (3, 4, 5, below)
- In the class period details, check the box for Attendance. Checking this box will enable the "Attendance" link within Edsby for the class (6, below)
- In the class period details, select a Period and assign Meeting Days to designate the schedule when this class meets. Having a schedule for the course allows Edsby to prompt teachers for attendance at the right day and time (7, below)
