Every teacher is aware of the fact that some of their students tend to skip a few classes where possible. If this teacher does not have an easy system to track each student’s attendance, it can get difficult to manage a big group. The Student attendance tracker template in Google Sheets makes it much easier because of its ease-of-use and automatic configuration. Take a look at the diagram below to see how it is designed in something so easy and common as spreadsheets.
How the system works
The template consists of a master spreadsheet to easily monitor all of your students’ attendance levels. The information comes from separate spreadsheets per class (e.g. Math, History, Science) and is consolidated into this one master file. The template is provided with some dummy data for the teacher to overwrite with own student information. This information automatically flows into a dashboard and uses relevant metrics to analyze each student’s performance.
