Roll Call Attendance Tool

Jump to solution

I'm a TA. My supervising professor's attendance policy allows for three unexcused absences, with the final grade losing two percentage points for every subsequent unexcused absence. Is this possible to integrate into the Gradebook with the Roll Call Attendance feature? Or will I just need to do a final grade override?

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi @AndrewStoebig 

The Canvas Roll Call/Attendance tool is an incentive tool rather than a punitive tool; meaning that it awards points for attending, but does not remove points for not attending.

You will need to manually override the final score based on the attendance tool score.

You could create a new Idea Conversation for this functionality in this community.

In a quick review of Idea Conversations, I did find one from my old friend @kona that you might like to support at Attendance Overhaul.

 

Good luck,

Kelley
