What would be the best way to Halachically mark attendance of Talmidim on Shabbos?


Would it be permissable to have a folder with a different tab for each Talmid, and when he comes late to put a piece of paper that says “5 minutes” etc. into his tab in the folder?

If not, are there any practical ways to mark?



Marking the attendance of your students, through placing printed papers with numbers in their folder, is permitted.
