Sometimes you need to enter extra hours for students. Those hours might consist of make-up time, extra hours in the lab, externship hours, community hours, volunteer hours, independent study hours, distance learning hours, etc. These hours are done outside of normal scheduled class time.
Enter these on our Hourly Attendance Page:
- From Class Details, click Attendance Options | Take Hourly Attendance
- From Class Attendance, click the link at top right "Go To Hourly Bulk Attendance Page"
- From Tools, click Attendance (Bulk Hourly)
On the Hour Pounder (our fun name for it), be sure to select the class. Then, be sure to select the type of attendance you are entering. In the top right, you will see a dropdown called Attendance Type. Each hour will be uniquely flagged as belonging to that category and can be reviewed / reporting on individually.
