Historical attendance

I am looking to pull historical attendance, namely TARDIES, onto our transcripts.  Has anyone successfully done this?  What data access tag did you use to pull previous years?

Re: Historical attendance

Good morning!  After a long and stressful back and forth, it seems the only solution to my historical tardies issue was to create custom fields and then manually enter the data for each year in question.  NOT the best solution as it does create addtinal steps.  BUT if ayone else is looking for the same information, custom fields are what they need to create.

Re: Historical attendance

Hi @dyhall1060,

 

If your school uses Daily attendance, you may be able to use the ^(daily.att.count) DAT tag to pull historical grades. If your school uses Meeting attendance, the ^(per.att) would be the one you'd want to employ. The instructions for each of these DATs can be found here:

Re: Historical attendance

I use this code below for most of our districts. It is based upon ~(Sched_YearOfGraduation).

I haven't tried it with Tardies, but I'm sure you can play around with it.

 

<tabc 7.39>Historical Attendance

 

~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);1)-~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);0): <tabd 7.4>~(*dabs;8/1/~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);1) ;7/1/~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);0);format=##0.0 )

~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);2)-~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);1): <tabd 7.4>~(*dabs;8/1/~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);2) ;7/1/~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);1);format=##0.0 ) ~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);3)-~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);2): <tabd 7.4>~(*dabs;8/1/~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);3) ;7/1/~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);2);format=##0.0 )

~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);4)-~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);3): <tabd 7.4>~(*dabs;8/1/~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);4) ;7/1/~(f.sub;~(Sched_YearOfGraduation);3);format=##0.0 )

Re: Historical attendance

Thank you for the formula.  It does not work for what we need, but I appreciate the attempt.

Re: Historical attendance

What exactly are you trying to pull? What DATs?

Re: Historical attendance

I want both absences (already have these) and TARDIES on our transcripts, for each of a student's 4 years with our school.  I have not found the correct DAT that pulls this information.

Re: Historical attendance

re you using ^(daily.att.count;;TAR;...) for your Tardies?
