Use the Section Attendance Settings page to create sections where attendance will be taken every period. These sections are sections created for the sole purpose of taking attendance in a section that meets more than once per day. For example, if a section of Biology 101 meets during Period 1 for lecture during each day of a two-day cycle and also meets during Period 3 for field study on alternating days, the expression for this section would be 1(A-B) 3(A). If you do not use this option, attendance taken during 3(A) will overwrite attendance taken during 1(A).
