A great way to take attendance. Put your student list in a Google Spreadsheet, and this app takes care of the rest. There is no need to enter total absences into a spreadsheet at the end of the semester because all absences/tardies are calculated in your google spreadsheet each day you take attendance. Check out our demo video. (ATTENTION: We know some users are experiencing problems after upgrading their version of Android to 2.3.3 – we just recently located the source of the problem and are working on a fix. Thank you for your patience, and we apologize for the inconvenience)
Get the App!
- Search “Attendance” in Android Market
- Direct Market Link (click here if browsing from Android Phone)
- Automatically calculates total absences and total tardies.
- Stores the dates that students were absent/late.
- All data is stored on your Google Docs account!
- An Android device running Android 1.6+
- Internet connection
- A Gmail or Google Docs account
The formulas added by the app produce an Error. What should I do?
This doesn't seem to happen often, but in the cases where it does - resetting the formulas usually works.
1. Open your Attendance App
2. Long press on the class that is giving you the error
3. Select Reset Formulas
This will go through the C and D columns and re-enter the proper formulas.
Please let us know if this fixes the issue or not. If it does not work, please go into google docs and share the spreadsheet with us that is giving you issues and we'll get to work figuring out what the problem is. If you don't want to share the original spreadsheet, make a copy and then share it.
Can I keep track of excused absences or days that the student attended (rather than days the student was absent)?
Not yet. But there will be. We're working on a update to give you more customization options to track the features that are most important to you.
Hi, This looks great/useful. I wasn't sure about how column A/B work. Is there a way to re-specify this, or do I have to set up another different class? Right now the last name is in column A, and the first name in column B - the app just shows the first name. I'd like to see both first and last name (preferably sorted by last) - not sure if this is even possible. Thanks!
We overlooked adding in an option to do that in the first release. It's easy to do (and we actually have that in Grade Book). That function will be included in the next release of Attendance.
For now, you'll have to re-add the class.
Anyway to download this app from a tablet? I have it on my D2, but it doesn't appear in the market on my archos 70
I've tested this on my Samsung Galaxy Tab, and it worked. We were excited because we thought we weren't going to need to do anything to make this Tablet ready. Let us look into this and we'll get back to you.
If I take attendance at the beginning of class and then press "submit," but then a student enters late and I mark him/her late at the end of class and press "submit" again, the app enters two sets of data for that date. Any way to avoid this? I want to try avoid losing my data at the beginning of class, you see. :)
Long press on the student's name and you can mark the student's last absence as late.
