About this Tool

The Canvas Roll Call Attendance tool helps instructors track student attendance in face-to-face courses. Use the tool to mark students present, absent, or late one at a time, or mark all present and then adjust the status for students who are missing or late. The course roster can be displayed as a list or you can create a custom seating chart. The data entered in the tool can be used to assign an overall attendance grade for each student, or attendance can be ungraded.
