If your instructor has assigned attendance grades, you can view your overall attendance grade and detailed records.

For each class meeting, instructors can mark whether you were present, late, absent, or excused. Each status is assigned a percentage out of 100. Your accumulative attendance grade is based on 100 percent.

Your instructors can use your attendance grade as part of your overall course grade. Also, some institutions and programs have attendance policies that require instructors to track the number of class meetings students have missed.

Check your attendance grades

To view your overall attendance grade for the course you're in, select the My Grades link on the course menu or on the Tools page. Your attendance grade appears on the All and Graded tabs.

Your instructor controls which links appear on the course menu.

Select the Attendance link to view the details of each course meeting. You can view a summary and easily see how many class meetings you've missed.

Your instructor can use your attendance grade in the calculation of your overall grade. If your instructor set up a weighted total and made it available, select the Grading Criteria link which shows how items and categories are weighted.
