New Analytics includes an Attendance tab, which updates according to criteria set at the account level. This change allows criteria to update attendance information for individual courses and remove manual attendance tracking.
Within the Account Settings Apps tab, admins can select the New Analytics configuration menu and view the option to enable or disable the Attendance tool. By default, this feature is turned off.
When enabled, admins can select the online attendance criteria for all courses. If a student meets any of the criteria in a given day, that student will be marked as attended.
The following criteria can be set within the Attendance Report:
For courses that have enabled New Analytics, Attendance displays as a tab within the page.
Note: Page views and participation may take up to 24 hours to display, depending when a course interaction occurs. History is displayed from April 2021.
Attendance can be customized to view specific data. By default, the report is configured to display by week, but instructors can view the report by day if needed. Data for prior weeks and/or days can be selected by clicking the arrow next to the selected date range.
By default, the report displays online attendance for all students, but additional sections or students can be added for granular viewing.
By default, Class Dates are set to weekdays, but dates can be customized within the report.
By default, the report filters all criteria, but instructors can filter the report to show students who have met all criteria or have not met all criteria.
Instructors can view the criteria set by a Canvas administrator as read only within the New Analytics page.
