Attendance Settings

The Attendance tool has 4 potential states -- present, late, absent, and excused (absent). On the Attendance Settings panel, you may enter the percentage of the possible attendance points a student would earn for each of these states.

By default, present earns 100%, late earns 50%, and absent earns nothing.

If you wish to include a points percentage with excused absences, click the toggle at the bottom of the table.
