Attendance For the last few years, I have been using Attendance to keep track of my daily attendance needs. It is simple, clean, and it does it's job each and every time. Sure, there are many apps out these days that take attendance and even include photos of your students, but for simple task of knowing if a student is present, absent or tardy, Attendance is a quality application. Attendance is a universal application for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. It allows you to take and keep attendance records for your classes, meeting, or other events. One of my favorite features of Attendance is that is quickly and simplistically connects to your dropbox account to sync information with the iPad version. This feature is wonderful because I often find that I am in the hallways taking my classroom attendance on my iPhone rather than my iPad. With just a few clicks, I can have a detailed breakdown of my students attendance emailed to me for further review. When you first begin working with the application, you will be given several choices for inputting student contact information. Student names and class rosters can be imported into Attendance either by hand, by creating a simple CSV file, or by importing a group from your Address Book. Attendance will divide your roster by class. When you are ready to begin your class and take attendance, simply click on your class and you will be presented with each students name and a button where you can list your students as Present, Absent of Tardy. These fields can also be customized to fit the needs of your class. There is no limit to the number of classes or students Attendance will handle. Attendance has several reporting features built into it as well. You can print, or email yourself a list by class, or by student of their attendance records. This report can be based on a select date range, or you can choose to report on the entire school year. Student rosters are fully compatible and sync able with your Dropbox account. It is very quick and simple for me to keep a backup copy of all of my classes on Dropbox.
