The Attendance Download screen lets you manually download attendance from classes that were created via the District Integration processes.
You can access the Attendance Download screen by clicking the Integration link, the Download link, and then Attendance link. Once you click the Integration link and you have enabled District Integration, you will see several integration related links below the Integration link. When you click the "Download" link, you will see three links below the Download link and the Grades link is selected. Click the "Attendance" link to access the Attendance download screen.
In addition to manually downloading attendance, you can automate your downloads.
Column Delimter: You can choose TAB delimited or Comma delimited and either format can be imported by the spreadsheet program you are using. TAB delimeted is recommended.
Start and End Dates: You must specify the start and end dates you want to download. Seven days is the maximum number of days you can download at a time.
Period: You can optionally specify a specific Period you want. Period numbers can be assigned to sections in the Sections Screen and can be used to indicate the sequence in which the sections meet from the students perspective. For example, a students "period 1" class is often referred to as their "home room".
Student ID Starts With: You can optionally specify the first few characters of the Student District ID values you want. For example, if your group contains students from many different schools and you preface their student IDs with letters such as GWH for "George Washington High School" and JH for "Jefferson High School", you could enter "GWH" to only get students who have IDs that start with GWH.
