Import Attendance Assignment Grades

BYU Learning Suite allows professors to create an attendance assignment type to be used throughout the semester to assign grades based on attendance. These assignments are viewed and graded in the Grader. Additionally, attendance grades can be imported to Learning Suite using a .csv file.

Note: An attendance assignment must be created before importing grades. Click here for more information about creating attendance assignments.

Step One:

Enter your Learning Suite course and select Assignments from the left navigation menu.

Step Two:

Locate the correct assignment and click the Score icon, located in the Scoring column.

Step Three:

Select Import.

Step Four:

Create a .csv file. The first row is imported as a header row. The first column should contain students’ net ID or BYU ID. The date header for each attendance grade column should be in the format of MM/DD/YYYY (ex: 05/03/2017).  For each day and student enter a 1 for attended, 0 for absent, and x for excused.

Step Five:

Save the .csv file to your computer. Select Choose File and select the .csv file on your computer.

Step Six:

A preview appears after selecting the file. Select the drop down menu in section 3 and select the column header of the column that contains students’ net IDs or BYU IDs. Click Import.

Step Seven:

An import summary appears, letting you know how many scores were imported successfully. Click View Details to view more information about any errors that occur.

Step Eight:

Scroll down to view all import summaries for the days you imported grades for. Click Done when you are finished looking at the import summary.
