Monitoring attendance in class is a measure of student engagement. It also allows students to take responsibility for their own learning. This is an active teaching strategy and can also contribute to learning analytics for the students in the topic.
The attendance tool in FLO allows a teacher to take attendance during class and for students to view their own attendance record. The teacher can create multiple sessions and can mark the attendance status as 'Present', 'Absent', 'Late', or 'Excused', or modify statuses to suit their needs. Reports are available for the entire class or individual students.
