How to: Mark attendance on a register

Marking attendance

  • In your Moodle module, click on the title of the Attendance record on the main module page
  • Click on the tab Sessions
  • Click on the Take attendance (green circle) icon next to the sessions listed under Actions

Tip:  If the session you intend to mark is not the current date change the list of sessions to 'Months'.  This will show you a list of all the session registers for that month.  See image above.

  • Once in the attendance register click on the relevant radial button next to each student to indicate their absence.  See image below.

Select P for present, L for late, E for excused and A for absent. In remarks, you can add a note about the absence if known e.g. medical appointment
