Hi admins and community,

 

We're trying to make an automated attendance system using NFC student cards. Is there a way to either:

 

 * Programmatically interface with the Attendance module provided by Canvas, using the REST API

 * Failing that, programmatically submit a mark for a student on an assessment (using an attendance assessment)

 

Alternatively, let me know if there are any better options available.

 

Thanks!

 

Luke
