It is incredibly helpful as a teacher to know how your students think about their learning. How do they feel about learning new material? Do they think that they are in charge of their learning, or is it something that is out of their control? Are some people simply just smarter than others?
This attendance sheet is very clean and allows you to keep track of attendance over time. This is a great way for a high school or middle school teacher to check off students each day. It's often most efficient to ONLY mark absent students, with the assumption all unmarked students are present. You could even appoint this job to a responsible student.
