BANNER XE Attendance Tracking

As New River begins the transition to BANNER XE, the first solution implemented will be Attendance Tracking. The Attendance Tracking module is used to record attendance and track attendance statistics for students by course. The data obtained will assist New River in observing attendance trends and identifying potentially at-risk students. Attendance Tracking is scheduled for release for the Spring 2014 term.

Attendance Tracking uses a hierarchy, working from the term level downwards. Attendance rules can be applied by term, subject, course number, section, or class meeting. Methods for tracking attendance consist of present/absent, total contact hours, or total absence hours. These tracking units work within the attendance rule hierarchy and different methods may be applied as needed.

Attendance Tracking is accessible through Banner Self-Service for both faculty and students. Faculty can record attendance, as well as apply notified absence and extended absence information to individual students. Faculty also have additional options, such as updating the attendance information for each course or setting specific class meetings as cancelled. Students may also view attendance information for each of their enrolled courses.
