Roll call attendance is an easy way to record attendance in the canvas system and have it accumulate a percentage grade in the grade book.
The Roll Call Attendance tool is an add-on in Canvas.
To enable the Roll Call Attendance tool in any course:
Once the Attendance tool has been enabled for your course, an Assignment labeled Roll Call Attendance will be available for your students. You can edit the date and time that this assignment is due.
To avoid calculation errors, never delete, rename, or unpublish the Attendance assignment.
Your instructor will input your attendance for each lecture.
You can view your attendance score by going to the Canvas course and selecting Grades, then view the Roll Call Attendance submission details.
