There are three 'statuses' in the attendance process -
Absent, when a student doesn't check in to your lecture. This means they can't interact with your activities at all - from inside or outside the classroom.
Checked in, where a student may not be present inside the classroom physically, but they can (although they may not) participate.
Present, where you have verified their physical presence. Again, a student who's present can (although they may not) participate.
There are two ways to verify someone's physical presence -
- By doing a manual roll call and tapping on a student's name to mark them present.
- By using the Automatic Attendance feature on Acadly to mark students present with a single tap. This works on mesh network based discovery of nearby devices
