The most powerful attendance platform built for Blackboard Learn.

Customize Statuses

Extend the power of Qwickly Attendance by creating custom attendance statuses. Create statuses like Tardy, Bonus or Major Participant. Each status supports having some percentage of an absence or points, or both, allowing you to tap into the powerful attendance algorithm beneath Qwickly Attendance. System Admins can set these statuses up and even allow faculty to create their own. Here are some examples of how they work:
  • Present is worth 100% of the days points, and is 0% of an absence
  • Absent is worth 0% of the days points and 100% of an absence
  • Tardy could be worth 90% of the days points, and be considered 33% of an absent (3 tardies = 1 absence)

Multiple Sessions a day
Need to take attendance for multiple sessions of the same class in one day? Qwickly Attendance allows taking attendance for any class an unlimited number of times per day and will even let you name each session. For instance, you can name a session "Nov 15 Class" and another "Nov 15 Lab".
Grade Center Integration
Qwickly Attendance can automatically create a grade center column and keep a running grade for each class. Instructors can either assign a total number of points for the whole semester or define a number of points for each time attendance is taken.
Custom Email Alerts
Qwickly attendance can send an email to students when they are marked as absent for the day, providing students with acknowledgement that they were missed in class and a receipt that they were absent. Instructors can even customize the email that is sent to provide a personalized message.

Absence Statistics

The Attendance Record shows the aggregate number of absences for each student. This includes custom statuses that may give students partial absences, such as tardies.
