Is There a Way to Lock Prepopulated Register Marks in Edulink One?

Register are fluid, so if a learner does turn up to lesson late or an error in the register has been made, staff can overwrite a mark by correcting it and adding a new mark code.

However, Edulink One can generate a confirmation message if a teacher attempts to change prepopulated mark codes. This would be because the attendance officer has filled in the mark codes, e.g. I for Illness, prior to the start of lessons.

To do this, you need to enter the Register tab in Administration settings. Click on the Registers Tab to begin.
