Try Class Charts for Online Attendance & Behavior Reporting

This month Class Charts became a financial supporter of Free Technology for Teachers. Here's what Class Charts is all about. 

Class Charts is a free service designed by a teacher for teachers. The service is best described as one part seating chart and one part behavior chart. In Class Charts you can create and arrange as many seating charts as you like. You can create charts in a "seating" format that shows seat placement or you can use a list view. You can use students' real pictures in your charts or you can use one of the avatar images in your charts.

Class Charts seating charts double as behavior tracking charts. To document a student's attendance and behavior just select his name from the chart and tap the appropriate icon for attendance or behavior. You can record positive and negative behaviors. Students and parents can see their reports by accessing Class Charts through an invitation code that you send to them.

If you're an Edmodo user you can find Class Charts in the Edmodo app store. Class Charts has been one of the most popular apps since it was added to Edmodo a few months ago.
