Change default point value for Roll Call Attendance Tracker at the account level

Jump to solution

I am a Canvas admin. Across our college, the policy is to not award points for attendance. By default the Roll Call Attendance Tracker creates a 100 point assignment. Is there a way for me to change this setting at the account level so that by default, for the whole college, the Roll Call Attendance Tracker creates a 0 point assignment or one that is excluded from the gradebook?

Hi James,

Unfortunately, there is not currently a way to change the default point value for Roll Call Attendance.  The only way to change the point value is on a course by course basis after enabling the tool in the course and taking the first attendance, last described in the "Changing the point value..." section ofhttps://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12871-4152430299
