Students are able to see their attendance provided a few things.
If both of these things are true then students will be able to see their attendance, and theirs only. They will not have visibility on attendance of others in their course.
Thanks, Samantha. My understanding is that the Attendance Tool does not show up in the students' Navigation Bar. I'm assuming that this would need to be added by the Admin person at the college.
That permission is dependent on your organization - but I would reach out to your Brightspace Admin to see
Hope this was helpful!
