Though each class at Ohio State grades based on its own special criteria, pretty much all of them ask that you attend every lecture / recitation session to receive participation points towards your final grade. At first, this may seem like an infeasible requirement; after all, some class sessions (especially the lectures) will have up to several dozen students at a time. How on earth can they possibly expect to record attendance accurately? The main system of taking attendance at Ohio State is through the use of an app called Top Hat.
The Top Hat app can be found on both Apple and Android devices.

Since you’ll likely be using this app on a frequent basis throughout your stay at Ohio State, you should know a few things about how it works:
I get that an entire post on a single app seems a bit much, but it bears repeating that Top Hat is used frequently by the teachers and students at Ohio State. In many instances, it is the only way to securely and accurately record your attendance, which again is considered part of your grade. By using Top Hat, you’ll be able to get participation credit (that would otherwise have been needlessly lost) towards your final grade.
