THE ATTENDANCE APP

The Attendance application was developed by Web Services in collaboration with the Academic Technology Team to provide instructors with a method of tracking attendance. After other third party applications and polling software was researched it became clear that this application would serve a large section of the UMass Lowell community.

INSTRUCTOR QUICK GUIDE (pdf) - Attendance data can be used to compute participation points, in accordance with the course syllabus. Often class engagement and participation can be used as an indicator for student success. Go to uml.edu/attendance to get started.

STUDENT QUICK GUIDE (pdf) - To access the attendance app, students go to the uml.edu/attendance with any device and log in with your student email credentials. Students can check their own records from the Records option on the menu.
