Create a New Attendance Activity

If you already have an Attendance activity from last term you need only to populate it with more sessions.

There is only a need to make a second Attendance Activity if you have different types of attendance to take such as lecture attendance and lab attendance with each type being worth a different point value.

Enter your course from the top-right corner of the page, toggle Edit mode into the On position if you haven’t already.

Turn Editing On button is found in the top-right corner of a Moodle page you have permission to modify content for.

Click the Add an activity or resource link below the (first/top-most) general section of your course.

Select the Attendance Option.

Click Add button from the bottom of the new window.

From the new page where you establish Attendance Settings:

OPTIONAL: Change the Name of the Attendance activity if you have more than one attendance type

Expand the Grade Section

Ensure Type is set to Point

Set the value of Maximum Points to the total worth of this attendance type. (Not the values of individual class-meetings.)

Click the Save and display button so we can now populate this activity with class sessions for the term.

Your attendance activity is now ready to have the sessions for the coming term added to it.
