Quaver teachers can choose to track student attendance in Teacher Admin in two different ways.
Select Attendance from your Student Admin dashboard.
Before you can take attendance, you’ll need to have your students enrolled in Classes in your Quaver GradeBook. Learn here.
Select a Class:
Once they are enrolled, use the white Class Selector box in the middle of the navigation bar to select a class. You can view additional classes and change your selection using the purple arrow.
Choose a date:
Across the top of the screen, you’ll see the dates of the current week. These dates are color-coded to help you find the date you need. Days in the past have a grey background. Today’s date is purple. Future dates are dark blue.
Use the yellow arrows in the top left corner to move forward or backward a full week. You can also click the CALENDAR icon to select any date. This list will always show you a full week view from Sunday to Saturday.
Attendance can be recorded for a single student or the whole class with a simple click.
Click in any cell to mark the individual student as PRESENT with a green “P.”
Click again to see that status change to a red A to indicate ABSENT, and so on.
An icon legend is provided with the different ways you can record student attendance and absences. You can view this legend by clicking HELP and ICON LEGEND.
Mark the default attendance of an entire class as “Present” by clicking on the date or day of the week. Click again to remove the default status. Select an individual icon to change that student’s attendance.
Record Student Attendance Automatically at Login
Quaver teachers also have the option to record student login as attendance automatically. This means that when a student logs in to Quaver, it will automatically mark them as present.
To automatically record student login as attendance:
- Select CLASSES from the Student Admin menu
- Here, you can choose to edit an existing class or create a new class.
- On the Class window, check the box that says Record Student Login as Attendance.
Leave Attendance and Behavior Notes
If you’d like to leave notes for yourself about a student’s behavior or attendance, right-click any cell. This will pull up a NOTES window. Enter your notes and click the green OK button to save.
The corner of that cell will now show a blue triangle. Hover over the blue triangle to see the notes you’ve entered. To remove the note, right click to edit and remove all text from the text box before selecting OK.
At any time, you can use the MENU icon to select “SHOW ARCHIVED STUDENTS” and any students you’ve archived will appear again. Click again to hide those students.
