Adult Ed ASAP Attendance

ASAP is an online attendance tracking system by which we show student participation and receive grant money and college apportionment. In other words, it pays the bills as much as CASAS does.

If your online ASAP attendance does not match the sign-in attendance, we must remove the student's hours. This impacts testing and EL Civics hours requirements and funding. It's a big deal.


​​ASAP Policies

  • When you enroll a student, triple-check that you have the right person by searching via birthdate rather than name. Only when you are sure that you have the right person, add the name to your online class roster.
  • Everyone who was ever in your class - even for one day - needs to be enrolled, marked present, and then dropped.
  • Your attendance is considered late if 48 hours have passed since your class meeting and there is no registered attendance.
  • Students should use same first name and last name on their sign-in sheet as on all other forms.
  • Have students print legibly on the 1st week’s sign-in sheet. (The first week you will not have created an online form yet.)
  • Check sign-in sheets at end of the class to make sure initials are in the correct space.
  • Initials should be done in ink - not pencil - as it is a legal document.
  • No check marks, lines, or any symbol except initials on the sign-in sheets
  • If a student has "disappeared," drop him/her from ASAP and also email Terri and Lupe to inform them of the person dropped.

ASAP Procedures

Basic Steps. See details below.

  1. Create a roster by finding your students and entering them into your class section after the first day of class. Before turning in the forms, use the registration and entry sheets to identify the students in ASAP. If a student is new to MSJC, add them to the roster when the ASAP number becomes available.
  2. Print out ASAP attendance sheet rosters with a month or more date range and have students sign in every day.
  3. After each class meeting (or even during the class meeting!), mark students present or absent in ASAP online. You can use a computer, tablet, or the phone app. Partial hours of attendance are not necessary. Mark only present or absent.
  4. Send us your print-out electronically every Monday -- scan, fax, or email a photo of it to Elva.
  5. Give us the physical sign-in sheet every month when you do your timesheet. Drop off at THEC or SJC, or MVC Office 913 to be routed to THEC Adult Ed.
Call the office with any questions.
We would love to help you use ASAP correctly!

It is much more time-consuming to undo and redo things than to answer your questions and help you.
