The Attendance tool can be a great addition to your course in Blackboard. 

Through the Attendance tool an instructor for each class meeting, can mark whether a student is present, late, absent, or excused.

  • Attendance data may be exported from your courses as a CSV file to import to another system.
  • Attendance data is included with other student data in course archives.
  • Easily use attendance as part of calculating grades as you can for an assignment grade column with Grade Center integration (attendance records for each student appear in a single averaged column next to other graded columns in the grade center).
  • For you students, Attendance is view-able through “My Grades”. (Grade appears on the All and Graded tabs).
