Attendance: Take Attendance Through Spreadsheet View, or Attendance Book

Last Updated: Aug 31, 2015 06:47PM EDT

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 the attendance book, complete the following steps.

Step 1

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.

Step 2

Click “Attendance” on the left hand side of Skedula, and then click “Attendance Book.”


Step 3

Click the “Filters” tab on the right hand side of the screen.



Step 4

Choose which weeks of attendance you would like displayed.


Step 5

Choose which days of the week you would like to enter attendance days for.


Step 6

Check the box if you would like to show possible cuts. This will compare the school’s daily attendance to your course attendance.


Step 7

Click “Apply Filter” to save your choices. This will take you back to the attendance book.


Step 8

Edit the attendance using the Attendance book. Type A (Absent), P (Present), L (Late) or E (Excused) in the boxes. The most recent week will appear on the left. Scroll right for more days of attendance.

 If you chose to show possible cuts, a red circle will appear next to students that were marked Present for official school daily attendance but absent for the course.

Note: Attendance will automatically save. If there is an entry that cannot be saved, the box around it will be red.


Step 9

Double click an attendance box to write in a comment for the student in the row on the date listed.


Step 10

Click “Save Changes” on the top right hand side to save the comment.
