Tracking Student Participation Through Attendance

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.

Information on how to use the Attendance App for both Faculty and Students can be found by accessing our Attendance Tool Information Page.

You can access the Attendance App by logging with your UMass Lowell credentials on the attendance portal.

On-Campus Blackboard

Blackboard has a built in Attendance feature that allows the faculty member to enter attendance manually. Points can be associated and displayed as a Score or Percentage.

View the Blackboard Attendance guide (pdf).
