How do we view a summary of Attendance with notations from badges?

I am using the Roll Call function. How do I view a summary of the attendance for individual students, complete with notations I made using badges? I want to click on each student's name, see how many times they are absent, and see what kind of notes (my customized badges) I made in regard to their class performance each day. In the end, I will assign them an Attendance/Participation grade based on all of this information.

Hi  @mvillega  Welcome (belatedly) to the worldwide Canvas Community. I see that you joined us late last year, but this appears to be your first post here. I will take an early stab at this--even though I personally do not use badges--and say that it may appear via the Roll Call Attendance Report.  Check, especially, the information given in the blue-colored box on the top of this page regarding badges:  How do I run Roll Call Attendance reports in a course?  Running the report itself will require a bit of Excel/spreadsheet knowledge, since the report is in the CSV format.  If it helps at all, I wrote a few online documents in the community regarding parsing out the information. The easiest one to use--on Google Sheets--unfortunately specifically recommends removing the badges field in order for the Google Sheet that I posted to work properly (Easy to Use Google Sheet for Interpreting Your Roll Call Attendance Report ).  Otherwise, give the longer document (which uses Excel examples, though assumes you know little about Excel) a try: . 

I hope this helps a bit, Mark.

We have so far had one faculty ask about this badge feature and retrieving a "badge" report.

( Note: we have not set any categories at the account/subaccount level to date ).

These are the badges she has set up.


Any comments or suggestions for us?

Has anyone come up with some useful badge categories?

Thanks, Tom

I spoke with someone at Canvas Support, and badges created by instructors are not available in a report.  Very disappointing.  Like you, badges in my class affect the students' grades.  Back to tracking attendance in Excel...

Hello there,  @mvillega ...
