A session is the digital equivalent of your classroom period for the day. When you begin a new session all students that are currently enrolled in that Classroom will be joined automatically and you will begin to see their data populate in your Session View. If a student is absent you can choose to exclude them from the day’s session by selecting their names upon startup. All session data is automatically recorded and will be archived and available for review at any point.
