Added Notes about QR Codes

  • Not all students may have a mobile device in class, so be sure to have an alternative sign in sheet, just in case.
  • If you set up the QR option, you can still opt for the traditional method for taking attendance.
  • When students self record, the attendance marks the status and puts 'self-recorded' in the comment box.
  • If a student doesn't have a mobile device with a camera to scan the QR code, they can still go to the Attendance link and self report. They will be prompted to enter a password; the password is randomly generated and appears on the QR page.
