About Attendance Records
How you keep attendance in your PEP Courses is up to you, as long as your method gives you the attendance information needed for the End Course reports. This is a suggested method that you may want to adopt. If not, it may give you some ideas for your own system.
1 To review the suggested attendance method, first download this attendance sheet. Edit this Word document to fit your needs.
2 Pass the sheet around at the beginning of each session, with these Instructions for attendees:
Write your first name and last initial on a line, answer Y/N, and put a check in column 1.
If your name is on the list, put a check in column <x>. If not, add your name, answer Y/N, and put a check in column <x>
3 Instructions for the Course Facilitators:
Keep and protect the sheet(s) to use from session to session. At the end of the course, review the sheet, enter the total number of check marks in each line in the Tot column, and circle each Y answer for anyone who attended at least 4 sessions.
New Attendees = number of Y answers on the sheet
New Participants = number of circled Y answers on the sheet
Total Attendance = total number Tot column
Total Sessions = number of columns on the sheet
4 In your count of New Participants, you may use your discretion to count a person who attended less than 4 sessions. Typically, this would mean that you know the person is keenly interested and very likely to attend a future Course. Such a person might be one who joined the Course late, or someone whose absence at more than 6 sessions was due to factors beyond his or her control.
