Finally! Here is a way to track students' comings and goings. Know who left and when they came back. Look at a graph to determine if more students are going to the bathroom or the office. Do you want to know how long someone has been away from class? Just check out the data on the corresponding Google Sheets file.
Students use this easy Google Form to check out and check back in. By using drop-down lists and multiple choice there is no typing involved (after you set it up). Just have a tablet or computer positioned near the door.
The information you gain has priceless possibilities. You have documentation for parents that little Johnny has been leaving class at least 3 times a day and is gone for 10 minutes each time. It seems to you that Julia goes to the nurse frequently, but now you have documentation how often and when.
The download comes with detailed instructions including screen shots.
After downloading this file, you will click a link to access the Google Form. VERY IMPORTANT: You must MAKE A COPY of the file before changing names or using it. For best results, read all the instructions.
I'm assuming there will be some tweaks necessary as teachers start using this file. PLEASE leave me feedback if you encounter any trouble opening the file, following the directions, or using the form. Thank you! - Mrs. Muri
