CourseKey's live attendance dashboard provides administrators with optics into class-by-class attendance behavior in real-time, making it easier for campus leadership to spot classes with low attendance. You can easily sort through which courses you want to view, and with the color coded dashboards you can quickly identify attendance check-ins and dive in for a detailed view of each student in the class.
Viewing the Dashboards
Live attendance can be viewed in the Admin Portal with data for all courses at the campuses associated with your account. This is only available to users with the relevant permissions.
1. Log in to your account on the web application and click on the Admin Home button in the top right corner of the screen.
2. Click on Live Attendance in the top navigation.
3. Select your School.
If you’re affiliated with more than one school or campus, you can choose which location you’d like to view from the drop down menu. You can also choose to view courses from all schools and campuses you have access to.
4. Filter the courses by the status of the attendance session: Active (attendance is still in progress), Scheduled (not yet started), Completed, or All.
5. Select the Date you want to view.
6. Enter your Search terms. (Optional)
In the search bar you can enter a course name, title, or instructor. Press the enter key, or click the magnifying glass to initiate the search. If more than one search term is entered, the filter will show courses matching any of the search terms.
Attendance Details and Edits
Clicking on any Active or Completed course on the dashboard will retrieve the daily Attendance List for the class. Current attendance sessions will display the timer and attendance controls in the top right corner of the page.
If sound technology is used in the course the speaker icon will default to red which indicates that your device is not projecting the check-in tone. Since school administrators may be monitoring several courses this can help prevent sound interference if attendance check-ins are occurring in another course nearby. If you wish to project the check-in tone, click on the speaker to unmute.
In the Attendance List you'll see each student's check-in status marked on the radio buttons. Clicking on the column headers can allow you to easily sort through a large list of students by last name, awarded time, status, or you can find a specific student using the search bar in the top right corner.
From within the Attendance List, administrators with the relevant permissions can make adjustments to student status and awarded time. For information on editing attendance check out the following articles:
