Attendance Report

New Analytics includes an Attendance tab, which updates according to criteria set at the account level. This change allows criteria to update attendance information for individual courses and remove manual attendance tracking.

Online Attendance Report

For courses that have enabled New Analytics, Attendance displays as a tab within the page.

Page views and participation may take up to 24 hours to display, depending when a course interaction occurs.

Date Data

Attendance can be customized to view specific data. By default, the report is configured to display by week, but instructors can view the report by day if needed. Data for prior weeks and/or days can be selected by clicking the arrow next to the selected date range.
