Attendance Running and Reporting
The Oasis Attendance feature does not provide foolproof protection against cheating. There are methods by which students can claim to be present in class using this tool even when they were not actually there. If you have any inquiries regarding this matter, please contact us at [email protected].
To activate Attendance, open the event in the calendar (not the edit events calendar) and select "Send attendance QR code." An email will be sent to you with a PDF and JPG attachment.
The simplest way to do this is by projecting the PDF on a screen in the lecture hall. Students can then scan the QR code, which will direct them to an Oasis Page where they must log in to record their attendance.
The QR code is active for 15 min before and 15 min after the start of the Oasis Event. If students try to use the QR code before or after that time window they will not be able to log their attendance.
You can run a report to see who attended the class at any time after the session.
Please note that only certain admin accounts have access to these reports. If your account has access, you can click on "Manage" and then select "Reports."
Be sure to select the Year, report and date range you are looking for. Then choose to have the report emailed to you.
Please be aware that the report only filters based on the date. It will display all events with Attendance enabled across your school's Oasis. If you have the necessary permissions to run these reports, please refrain from sharing student attendance data with anyone who is not an instructor or course manager. If the report includes other course data, you can utilize Excel to filter out any events that are not relevant.

Attended: this is listed as yes or no.
