Skedula allows teachers to rearrange student seats in the “Take Attendance” view, allowing teachers to take attendance more quickly.
To setup a seating chart, complete the following steps.
Select the course you would like to setup a seating chart for on the top of Skedula.
Note: If you cannot see all your courses, hover your mouse over “All Courses” on the top right hand side.
If you have too many courses in the drop down menu, click here for more information on how to group your courses.
Click “Attendance” on the left hand side of Skedula, and then click “Take Attendance.”
If you have not taken attendance for this course today, a window will pop-up to notify you. Click “Close.”
Under “Management Mode,” select “Move Seats.”
Add any rows or columns you would like to imitate your classroom setup by clicking “Add Row” or “Add Column.”
In this example, the class has 2 pods with 4 students and 1 pod with 5 students. Enough rows have been added to have space between each pod.
Pick up and drag students into the seating arrangement you would like.
Note: If you cannot see all the rows on the screen, you can use the left and right arrows to make rows visible.
Click “Save All Seats” when you are finished. Click “OK” on the pop-up window that comes up to confirm.
Under “Management Mode,” click “Take Attendance” to view your seating chart.
Reset Seating Chart
To reset your seating chart, click “Functions” on the top right hand side and then click “Reset Seat Positions.”
