You may choose to factor students attendance into the calculation of their final grade:
- Click on the GRADEBOOK tab, then select OPTIONS from the Gradebook menu.
- Click the ATTENDANCE tab in the Gradebook Options window.
- You can modify the percent deducted for absences and tardies and/or the number of absences and tardies permitted before a penalty is incurred. Click in the appropriate field to edit these parameters. By entering "0" or leaving these fields blank, attendance will not be counted against the final grade.
- Click the DONE button to save your changes. Click CANCEL to exit without saving.
The deduction from the final grade is measured in percentage points, not as a percent of that grade. For example, if an attendance policy deducts 2% for every two unexcused absences, then a final grade of "88" would become "86" if the student had two unexcused absences.
