Census Date Attendance Reporting
Last Updated 3 months ago

Please note: our 16 week courses may have a different census date than our 8 week courses. If you are teaching courses in both lengths, your courses may have different entry/deadline timeframes.

Every Bushnell course section has a census date that is used to report the state of attendance in class. This reporting helps Bushnell care for our students and meet regulatory requirements. This process only requires that you note which students have not attended your course.

The census report is open from your course's census date until 2 days later. There are email reminders that will provide your due date. Once the due date has past, the action button will disappear. You will need to call the registrar's office to complete your submission.

If all your students in a course have attended, please proceed to Step 5 of the instructions to complete the report.

  1. Log in to J1Web ( using your Bushnell user name and associated password.
  2. Click the menu "waffle" in the upper left corner of the web page, then select Faculty ==> Manage my course list: image
  3. Navigate to each course that needs attendance reporting. To do this go to Click on the blue section options button, then “Manage Attendance.”
  4. Click the checkbox next to each student who never attended. Then click the blue options button to the right and select “Report Never Attended.” Do not use the “Report No Longer Attending” feature.
  5. Once all students who have not ever attended have been reported, select the green Action button on the right. Select “Mark no longer attending complete.” and "Mark never attended complete"image
  6. The top of the attendance reporting screen will then look like this:image

By clicking "Mark no longer attending complete" and "Mark never attended complete"- you have finished your census date attendance reporting! (don't be alarmed if the green checkmarks don't immediately appear - sometimes the page will need to be refreshed first)
