Skedula allows teachers to take attendance in different ways so that teachers may pick the way that is the most efficient and convenient.
To take attendance through a seating chart, complete the following steps.
Select the course you would like to take attendance 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. You can mark all students Present or all students Absent to save time while taking attendance. Click “Close” if you do not want to mark all students present or absent for today’s date.
Underneath “Attendance date,” choose the date you would like to take attendance for. A calendar will come up when you click in the box. You can click on a day in the calendar to make it the attendance date.
Hover your mouse over a student you would like to take attendance for. Click A (Absent), P (Present), L (Late) or E (Excused). You can also type a comment in the box.
Note: Attendance will save automatically. You will see a save disc appear in the bottom left of the students picture. A small box with the color of the attendance indicator will show up for that student after it has been recorded.
If you do not have a seating chart set up, click here for instructions on how to do so.
Note: You can also use Find and Replace Attendance, or Bulk Attendance, to make this process quicker. For instructions on how to do this, click here. If you would like instructions on how to delete attendance, click here.
