How do I run Roll Call Attendance reports for an account?

You can run reports to review attendance information for a subset of the courses and students in your account. This report is sent to your email, where it can be downloaded as a comma separated value (CSV) file.

The downloaded CSV report displays all content in a list. Reports always include the following data fields: Course ID, SIS Course ID, Course Code, Course Name, Teacher ID, Teacher Name, Student ID, Student Name, Class Date, Attendance, and Timestamp.

Roll Call Attendance Badges are included in account reports if they were created in the account and have been assigned to students. Additionally, the badges will also only be included if they were set within the time frame you specify in the report. To view badges for reports in a subaccount, you must request the report from the subaccount. For example, if an instructor has marked a student with a badge that was created in a course or in a subaccount, the badge will not appear in the report when exported from the account.

You can generate reports for the entire course, or you can generate reports based on specific students or courses. To locate a course or student ID, view the People page, click the name of a student, and both the course and student IDs will be in the browser URL (e.g. courses/XXXXXX/users/XXX).

Note: In order to gather all the needed information, a provisioning report will also be generated when an attendance report is requested. The provisioning report can be viewed in the Reports tab in Account Settings.
