Qwickly Attendance offers a variety of ways to take attendance: take attendance manually using a list of students or click through students one by one, start a student check-in session in which students can check in on their own devices or integrate with USB card readers for reading student ID cards with a variety of card readers for an extra layer of verification.
Qwickly Attendance provides power and flexibility with attendance statuses. Three attendance statuses are built in (Present, Absent, and Excused) and others can be created for all courses or individual courses. Each status has an absence weight and points attached to provide basic options like late or tardy all the way to building complex participation scales.
Worth 100% of the sessions points and 0% of an absence.
Worth no points and a full absence for the session.
Excuses the student from the session, gives no points and no absence.
Create tardy, left early, extra credit, participation statuses or any other status you can imagine.
Students have a unique view of the attendance screen, allowing them to see their own record, helping them stay on track of any attendance policies. Of course, they are not able to see the record of any other student.
Transform attendance taking procedures for both faculty and students.
Winning faculty over with the statement, "Never answer the question, 'How many absences do I have?', again!"
