If you’re taking daily Homeroom-based attendance in QuickSchools with the Custom Attendance Codes app, we’d like to highlight a new report called “Homeroom/Class Teacher (Consolidated Exception) Attendance” Summary Report (Yes, it’s a mouth-full):
This report consolidates all attendance codes, both custom and system codes, into a single roster-style report. Since this is an Exception report, all Present records are excluded. So the report only shows codes that are applied OTHER than Present. This will make it easy to identify trends in attendance for students and classes.
Please note, you can still generate your own custom reports using the Report Creator app.
The Online Form app is often used for online student re-registration. During this process, administrators need visibility into students who have NOT submitted the re-registration forms, so they can follow up with students and/or parents before the due date. Administrators can also use the report to track existing entries, including students who have started but have not submitted their forms. The reports below provide these information:
Missing Online Forms – lists students who haven’t submitted the forms for a particular Form Packet.
Online Form Submissions – lists the students who have started and/or submitted forms for a particular Form Packet
The Online Forms app also allows schools to collect fees on submission, and the Paid Online Form Submissions report lists payment information for each submission.
To enable these reports, just go to MY APPS and click Configure in the Online Forms app. Enter the role or user who can access the reports.
Once enabled, users can go to the Reports tab to run the Online Form reports.
The Sign-Out/In App is a popular app in the QuickSchools app store. Schools use this app to handle many different needs such as tracking when parents drop off and pick up their students, tracking what time students enter and leave after school programs and activities, etc.
We recently added a few new reports to this app to help see your data in different ways. Once the app is installed you will see the reports under the Summary Reports tab:
We have several canned reports in QuickSchools under the “Summary Reports” module, related to Attendance. Here’s a quick list of the most relevant reports::
Attendance Not Yet Taken
This is the main report used to view all attendance records. There are several filters available:
And there are several Report Variations available:
Note that each Report Variation is simply reformatting the data in a different way. But they all work off the same data, based on the filters applied to the report. All Summary Reports work this way. Here’s an example Report Variation of the “Attendance Summary” report called “Attendance Detail”:
If you run a school with rolling admissions, where students can join in the middle of the semester, it might be helpful to run a report in QuickSchools to identify students who have not yet been enrolled into any subjects. So to facilitate this, we’ve created a new Summary Report called “Students Not Enrolled into Subjects/Sections”:
Running the report simply shows a list of students:
The Custom Attendance Codes app has been in the QuickSchools App Store for several years now. The app itself has not changed much, but there are a couple new features to mention. So we thought we’d revisit this app and it’s functionality.
The Custom Attendance Codes app essentially allows you to
Create additional attendance codes specific to your school
Allow teachers to use custom attendance codes while taking attendance
Note/record attendance codes to be applied in the future
Inform teaches of applied attendance codes when taking attendance
The Attendance Codes app essentially has 2 components that in combination can address the scenarios above, and these are (1) the Attendance Codes themselves, and (2) a Daily Status which is essentially the application of the Attendance Code on a date range. When configuring the app, you can keep these components purely for administrators, or you can allow teachers to view them on their Attendance roster:
Custom Attendance Codes
Users with administrative access to the Attendance Codes app will have the ability to view/edit Attendance Codes under the “Codes” submenu (under the main “Attendance” menu):
When adding/editing an Attendance Code, the following fields are available to you:
