Take and Submit Attendance

TeacherPlus offers three flexible ways to take attendance: the Attendance column, Weekly View, or Seating Chart. The Attendance column is a simple approach to taking and submitting daily attendance, whereas Weekly View enables you to review attendance for a given week. If you prefer taking attendance using a seating chart, the visual Seating Chart feature is a good choice.

Take Attendance Using the Attendance Column

  1. Click the ATT buttonAttendace Button Off(off)/Attendance Button On(on) below the navigation bar to turn on the Attendance column.

    The Attendance column has two sub columns: the Officecolumn, displaying attendance taken by the office, and the Classcolumn, showing the attendance taken by you.

  2. In the Class column, right-click a cell corresponding to a student to reveal more options.

  3. Click one of the attendance options from the shortcut menu.

    Students are assumed to be present (indicated by a blank attendance cell) unless you enter a code in the Class column.

  4. Repeat steps 2–3 to take attendance for all students.
  5. Click Submit at the top of the column to indicate to the office that you have taken attendance.

    Once attendance is submitted, the gradebook icon for the class displays a green circle around it (for example, Attendance Circle).

Instead of right-clicking to take attendance, you can also just click the cell to enter the next attendance option. For example, if you click the cell and it changes to "A" (for absent), clicking the cell again would change it to "T" (for tardy) or the next attendance option in your gradebook.
