Update: Attendance, Behaviour and Terms

Attendance 2.0 beta

Forget everything you know about the old attendance keeping system – we now introduce a brand new attendance platform. Our efforts have been focused on making the attendance keeping as efficient and simple as possible. The new system has keyboard shortcuts, supports tabbing, and features a new and intuitive user interface. Presence is automatically kept.>

Both teachers and mentors are allowed to keep attendance. Teachers keep attendance at course level, while mentors manage attendance for their groups.>

New reports and day and week overviews facilitate early detection of problems connected to absence. The reports show information such as attendance statistics for individual learners or courses and calculate absence rates.>

To help reminding the learners of the importance of attendance and participation, we have made it possible for them to follow their attendance across courses under the ePortfolio tab.>


The new attendance keeping system is based on two new concepts: Attendance categories and attendance codes for easy grouping of the attendance. Organisations are allowed to decide their own codes and categories.>

Attendance 2.0 beta is enabled for all customers in the primary and secondary segment. Sites using the old attendance system must contact our >support> in order to have it enabled.>

The next step in the development of the attendance system will be to add support for exporting to Management Information System (MIS).>

Behaviour beta

The new behaviour tracking is a tool for keeping track of positive and negative behaviour. Both mentors and teachers can keep behaviour, and the learners are presented with reports of their conduct. It is possible to add your own behaviour types, and use weighting to grade the behaviour. Behaviour is enabled for all schools belonging to the primary and secondary segments.>

Note that the behaviour system is not fully translated to all langugages and English texts may appear.>

Administrators are now allowed to add terms to the organisation. A term is usually the time during which the organisation holds classes, sometimes called 'semesters', 'quarters', or 'trimesters', depending on institution and country.>

The first features to use terms are the new attendance and behaviour systems, but in the future we will include it in other functionality.>

Important about hierarchies and the new functionality

In order to allow adding terms, policies and eSafety rules, the root hierarchy should be defined as a site. The organisations for which you want to add terms, policies and eSafety rules must be defined as schools or sites. You should not add a site under a site. The logical rule is: one site, and several schools within that site, but not several schools within a school.

Hierarchies are edited from Administration >> Hierarchy. Select the correct type from the Hierarchy type drop-down list, and click Save.>
