Student Attendance Report

Jackrabbit databases can be set to track absences or track attendance (days attended).  The Student Attendance Report is available regardless of what your database is set to track and allows you to see important attendance metrics quickly and easily!

See how often students attended or missed class to promote students, assess instructor effectiveness, and review the current session schedule for class popularity. 

View attendance details showing which students were late for class, left class early, or were only observing the class that day. Identify any patterns and address the situation by sending an email directly from the report results.

The Student Attendance Report is located in the Families / Students section (Students tab) and the Classes / Enrollment section (Attendance tab) of the Reports menu.

Make this a Favorite Report to allow you quick and easy access!


Search Criteria and Display Settings

The Student Attendance Report can be generated for a single date, or a range of dates.

If you have multiple locations in your database, use the Family Location criteria to drill down to only those students in Family records with a specific location or the Class Location criteria to look at only students enrolled in classes at a specific location.

Other search criteria allow you to search for students enrolled in classes with a specific:

  • Class Status (Active, Archived, Inactive, Terminated)
  • Session
  • Category 1, 2, or 3
  • Instructor

You can also use search fields to select a specific Class, Family/Acct, or Student.

With the display settings, you can include attendance details showing which students were late, left early, or were only observing the class.

The Report Results

There are many columns of information available in the report results. Use the Show/Hide Columns button to select the information you want to display.

The report is sorted by family name as the default, but you can click on the column header of any column to re-sort the results based on that column.

Create an email, to be sent from Jackrabbit, to the families in the report results using the Email button. Select the Email All check box to include all families or select only some families using their check box. A record of this email is kept in the Family record on the Misc tab > View Sent Emails for 180 days. If you prefer to send the email outside of Jackrabbit, from your email editor (Outlook, Gmail), select the email address link in the Billing Email column. Note: No record of this email is retained in Jackrabbit.

# Days Classes Met, # Absences, and # Attended Explained

# Days Classes Met

This is the number of times the class met during the time frame used when you created the report. This number may differ between students because it takes into account a student's enroll date and drop date. If you have added any Closed Dates, these are also factored in.

Example

  • Class meets on Mondays
  • Report generated for month of September 2018
  • Closed date entered for Labor Day (9/3/18)

- A student who was enrolled on 9/1/18 would have 3 in the # Days Classes Met column.
- A student who was enrolled on 9/15/18 would have 2 in the # Days Classes Met column.
- A student who was enrolled on 9/1/18 but dropped on 9/20/18 would have 2 in the # Days Classes Met column.

# Absences

  • When you are taking attendance in the Staff Portal, this is the number of of times the student was marked absent (during the time frame used for the report).
  • If your database is set to track absences, and you are not using the Staff Portal for attendance, this is the number of times an absence was recorded for the student in the Class record (during the time frame used for the report).
  • If your database is set to track attendance, and you are not using the Staff Portal for attendance, the # Absences column will show zeros.

# Attended

  • When you are taking attendance in the Staff Portal, this is the number of times the student was marked present (during the time frame used for the report).
  • If your database is set to track attendance, and you are not using the Staff Portal for attendance, this is the number of times an attendance was recorded for the student in the Class record (during the time frame used for the report).
  • If your database is set to track absences, and you are not using the Staff Portal for attendance, the # Attended column will show zeros.
When taking attendance in the Staff Portal, the total # Absences and # Attended should add to the total # Days Classes Met. If this isn't the case, it is an indication that there is incomplete attendance. Use the Incomplete Portal Attendance Report to find the classes that need attention.


In addition to being accessible from the Reports menu, the Student Attendance Report can also generated from the Student and Class records using the Absence/Attendance button.

When generated from the Student record, the search field for Select Student is automatically filled with the student name in the search criteria.

When generated from the Class record, the search field for Select Class is automatically filled with the class name in the search criteria.
