Canvas has a nifty feature that allows you to electronically mark attendance for your classes. If you would like to use this feature for your spring courses there are a few things you should know about Roll Call.
- Roll Call is located in the left-hand column of Canvas and is listed simply as Attendance. This should not be confused with USF First Day Attendance. Roll Call is meant to be used throughout the semester.
- Once you activate Roll Call Attendance, it will automatically create an assignment worth 100 points and a corresponding column in your gradebook worth 100 points. You can change the point totals to reflect the weight of attendance in your syllabus.
- You can also adjust the value of attendance when someone is late. The default is 80% for that day.
If you would like to learn more about Roll Call, you can visit the Canvas Instructor Guides, or send me an email and I will be happy to sit down with you to show you how it works!
