Changes often force us to adapt in ways we’ve never experienced, which can be a major driver of personal (and even professional) growth and development.


Canvas - Attendance (Roll Call)

Once the tool is enabled, use the Roll Call feature within Canvas to easily track and award points for attendance. Encourage students to upload a picture to their user profile to help setup the seating chart feature, which makes it easier to take attendance. 

Before you use this tool - please be aware of all the issues:

  • Issues with cross-listed courses. You will need to take attendance separately for cross-listed courses. 
  • Can’t use it for grading without high potential for error
  • Can’t edit points without messing up the Grades
  • Can’t delete, rename or un-publish attendance assignment without causing Grade errors

Please vote to have the Attendance Tool Overhauled. Canvas will improve features based on user votes.
