Contrib: Attendance

Purpose

We are putting together some specifications and designs for a new tool that will track student's attendance. The idea is to have a simple table that lists each day the class meets where a teacher can insert in attendance records for each student.  I've heard there's been some interest in the community for a tool like this and it would be great to get the community involved. I'm hoping to get input from everyone about any ideas or features they'd like to see. Also, any collaboration with design, UI, or internationalization would help a lot.

Suggested Features

Please add additional features, but do not remove any.

  10. handler

    The instructor could choose to assign points for attendance, and this data could be (optionally) linked to the gradebook to give an overall attendance score (bryan note: good way would be to set weight value to attendance marking aka present = 1, tardy = .8, absent = 0)

  14. handler

    If the instructor is marking off a whole list, rather than having to click in a cell and then type a letter, maybe just a quick 'click' onto the cell to mark them as present. Multiple clicks could toggle through the list of options perhaps.

    The list of options should be configurable. Some courses might only need 'present' or 'absent', some might need more

  16. handler

    The option to default everyone to present and then mark them as absent. It's easier marking off 2 or 3 absent students, than 47 or 48 present students (assume 50 students in a class)
