The Qwickly Attendance tool enables faculty to take attendance that is automatically graded in the Blackboards Grade Center. Faculty will have to do an initial setup at the beginning of each term within their Blackboard courses. After the setup is completed a gradebook column gets created automatically and keeps a running grade for each class.
