Add absences to the journal
In eKool, inserting absences is the subject teacher's task. That's different from the system in many countries. The teacher knows, who is present in his/her class and who is absent.
- Open journal
- To mark who were absent you need to choose the pupil and lesson from the grid and click, then a new detailed screen will be opened (the same one as the one you can use for changing a grade) and you just need to uncheck the “Present” check-box and choose the absence type from the drop-down list. The first reason is usually the “default” reason, which is set by the administrator. All students who are not absent, get automatically marked “present” in the database.
- To remove absence, the teacher has to click on the absence cell and click again on the “Present” checkbox.
- It’s also possible to mark absences after opening the lesson column (click on the column title) and add absence marks to different students at once. If Form-master has confirmed absence notes, the absence reason is added.
- It’s also possible to collect confirmed absences to make it easier to find out absent students, the teacher has to click on the “Get Absences” button. If a student is actually present, is possible to delete the collected reason.
