Many instructors who teach face-to-face and blended courses use attendance data as part of their students' overall grades. It is now possible to collect and manage student attendance data within your existing Blackboard course.
For each class session, faculty can mark whether a student is present, late, absent, or excused. Within the Attendance Tool, faculty members can view attendance for a specific day, or over the entire semester.
An additional "Attendance" column has been added to the Blackboard Grade Center, allowing faculty the option of including attendance in semester grade calculations.
