I am wondering what is the proper choice in the following examples:

Example 1:

I missed the previous session. So the teacher..........

a. marked me absent
b. marked me as absent

Example 2:

Teacher: Remember! If you are late for classes by more than 15 minutes, you will be............

a. marked absent
b. marked as absent

I would appreciate if someone could let me know whether the preposition "as" is optional or superfluous here.

Yes. In both examples, the preposition as is optional.
