Tracking student attendance is vital for your business. When you keep accurate attendance records, you will be able to identify trends and make informed business decisions.
Jackrabbit offers two options for keeping your students' attendance records, allowing you to choose the workflow that works best for you.
By default Jackrabbit it set to track absences (when a student is not in class). Because students will be in class more often than they are not, tracking absences is less data entry for your staff. You can, however, opt to have that setting changed so that you are tracking attendance (when a student is in class) instead.
There are several differences between a Jackrabbit database that is set to track absences and a database set to track attendance.
|Record several absences at once, for either one student, or a whole family of students.|
|Schedule makeups for missed classes.|
|Use a barcode scanner to record the students who come to class.|
