MyLO - My Learning Online

Using an Attendance Register

Attendance records for tutorials, practicals, workshops and lectures can be entered directly into MyLO.

To take attendance for groups smaller than the whole class, such as a tutorial class, it is best to have these groups set up in MyLO. Before taking attendance, a register needs to have been created

  1. Attendance Register 3If your students are divided into groups it may be easier to mark attendance per group.
    • Change the View By to Groups (then click Apply)
    • Select a group (then click Apply)
    • By default the system only lists 20 student per page.  Change this to 200 per page so that everyone is listed.
  2. Assuming most students attended the session with only a few absent, it's easier to set the status for everyone at once then change it for a few.
    • Select all the students by ticking the box above the first column of the student table.  This automatically ticks all the boxes.
    • Click Set Status
      • The Set Status for Selected Users box pops up.
      • Change the status to P (for present)
      • Click Save.
  3. Find the students who didn't attend the session and change their attendance status to A (for absent)
  • When you are happy with your changes click Save
  • Click Close.
