Is there a way to include attendance grades into a gradebook and to also be included in the final grading?

    Hello @Richard.O.260

    You could create a grade item named "Attendance" in your grade book, and manually fill it out with your students' attendance marks.

    Now if you are looking for an automatic workflow between the Attendance and the Grades tools, unfortunately, that is not currently possible. In that case I advise you to reach out to our Product Idea Exchange (PIE) and put in your suggestion as a feature request:

    The Product Idea Exchange is designed for users like you to send direct submissions to our Product Development organization and has the following advantages:

    • It allows you to receive direct updates on each request you submit
    • It allows other community members to vote on ideas
    • It allows other community members to contribute to and collaborate on each idea
    • It ensures ideas that have the greatest impact on our clients and end users receive consideration for inclusion in future releases.

    We look forward to hearing from you at the Product Idea Exchange!

    Hi @Richard.O.260 ,

    Thanks for reaching out to the Brightspace Community with your attendance related question.

    Currently, there is no way to push attendance information to gradebook automatically. Grades must be manually entered or manually imported into the attendance grade column. There is no way to do automated grading of attendance in Brightspace.

    We recommend you connect with this item in our Product Idea Exchange to vote it up or leave comments outlining your use case. Your feedback is important to us!😀
