How are Tiers Calculated?

The student's tier calculates by averaging the total number of days absent across all courses. There are Period and Attendance Tiers reports available:

  • Select Students' average daily attendance tier on the Daily Attendance Reports tab.

  • Select Students' average attendance tier on the Period Attendance Reports tab.

Review Student-Level Data

You can review student tier data in two ways:

  • From the main menu, select Attendance Insights in the Attendance section. Choose the school, and then select the student.

  • Enter the student’s name in the search bar, and then select the student.

On the student page, review attendance tier level by course.
