Setting Up Class Attendance

Taking Class Attendance

Automatic Grading of Attendance Sessions

Moodle allots each attendance session two points, broken down as such:

  • Present – 2 points out of 2 points possible
  • Late – 1 point out of 2
  • Excused – 1 out of 2
  • Absent – 0 out of 2

For example:

If you have 16 attendance sessions, and student A has an attendance record of 13 P, 1 L, and 2 A, they would have earned 27 out of 32 points which is an 84.375 (27/32). That 84.375 is the grade that Moodle would put in the gradebook for the Daily Attendance activity, if you had told Moodle that the attendance activity was worth 100.
