A function of TaskMaster is to track student attendance. Without this function, it would merely be database of student information. To be able to track attendance, first attendance must be taken, and then it must be entered into TaskMaster. Attendance may be taken and entered, either manually or by scanning.
Take attendance manually
For users who do not need or do not want to use scanning, attendance may be taken manually. Under some circumstances, manually taking attendance may actually be more convenient than by scanning, such as when taking the attendance of a group of students who attended an event. There are three methods to take attendance manually:
- Attendance Sheet. Take attendance by marking attendance on attendance sheets printed by TaskMaster that list all the students and provide a space to mark student attendance for each day of the month. The attendance data on the sheets is then manually entered into TaskMaster.
- Attendance Card. Take attendance by marking attendance on individual student muster cards printed by TaskMaster that provide a space to mark attendance. The attendance data on the sheets is then manually entered into TaskMaster.
- Student ID Cards. Student ID cards are normally used for scanning, but cards may also be used to enter attendance into TaskMaster manually. Collect the cards for a class and, instead of scanning the cards, use them to manually record attendance.
