Attendance Grades in Ultra

This guide pertains to Ultra Course View.

If your course is in Original Course View, see the Original Course View tutorial collection.


Attendance Tracking Overview

If your instructor has assigned attendance grades, you can view your overall attendance grade and detailed records.

For each class meeting, instructors can mark whether you were present, late, absent, or excused. Each status is assigned a percentage out of 100. Your accumulative attendance grade is based on 100 percent.

Your instructor can use your attendance grade as part of your overall course grade. Also, some programs have attendance policies that require instructors to track the number of class meetings students have missed.

Check your Attendance Grades

You can access your overall attendance in a course from these areas:

Course Grades Page

In a course, click on Gradebook on the navigation bar located near the top of the course to access your Course Grades page and view your overall attendance grade. From the list of graded activities, select Attendance to open up the side panel to view details of each course meeting. You can view a summary and easily see how many class meetings you've attended or missed.

Attendance and Your Overall Grade

Your instructor can use your attendance grade in the calculation of your overall grade.  The overall grade helps you keep track of how you're doing in each of your courses. You can see if you're on track for the grade you want or if you need to improve.

If your instructor has set up the overall grade, it appears on the Global Grades page found on the Bb homepage and inside your course on your Course Grades page. Select the grade to learn more about how it's calculated.

The Overall Grade panel shows you how items and categories are weighted. The percentage listed with each entry shows how much it contributes to your overall grade calculation.
