[OPEN] Mark All as present in Attendance tool doesn't post grades for all students the first time


Engineers are currently investigating the issue.


When taking attendance for the first time in a course, if you use the "Mark All Present" button, only one student's score gets passed to the Gradebook.

Expected Behavior

Instead it should pass through a score for every student when the button is selected.


No workaround exists at this time.

Steps to Reproduce

  • Prerequisite: A published course with two or more students and the Roll Call Attendance tool installed.

  1. For the first time taking attendance in the course, navigate to the Attendance tool and select "Mark All Present".

  2. Navigate to the Gradebook and notice that only one student had a grade passed through for them.
