Creating Attendance Registers in D2L

Attendance registers are entries that you create to track attendance for activities in your course. You can create attendance registers to track attendance for mandatory chat sessions, weekly seminars, or class meetings. Use registers to define the sessions, attendance expectations, and applicable users and enter data as you complete each session.

What are the basics of Attendance?

The Attendance tool enables you to create registers that track attendance for activities within your organization or course. You can track attendance for any number of activities and customize your registers to suit your needs.

Use the Attendance tool to create sessions to track attendance and define attendance statuses for your activities. You can assign grades for user attendance, view attendance results, and track users that have poor attendance.

How attendance is calculated

The % Attendance field is calculated by adding the total assigned % for each status and then dividing it by the number of statuses that have an assigned %. This is represented using the following illustrated formula:

Sum of Assigned % / Total of statuses with an Assigned % x 100
