Ideally, local ABE policy would be that students attend only on actual days/times the class is open. But sometimes students show up for instruction or lab work on a day when the class is not scheduled to meet.
The tricky part comes in how to record those hours, since you cannot enter class time on non-class days. Here are a couple options, neither of which is perfect.
- Enter the non-class day hours as block time on the Students>Time tab. Those hours will be attached to the student, but they will not be credited to a specific class for monthly class attendance reports.
- Add the extra hours on a day when the class does meet. This method will not be dead-on accurate for the day when the student actually received instruction - and we're shooting for dead-on accurate.
Note: students attending during non-class hours should be a rare exception rather than the rule! If this happens often, consider changing the class schedule to reflect the actual days and times students are allowed to attend.
