Assimilation Time as a Factor of Performance: Impact on a New Generation of Students
Mohrweis, Lawrence C.; Pitt, Kay C.
American Journal of Business Education, v3 n1 p15-19 Jan 2010
This paper explores the issue of whether assimilation time has any bearing on the performance of students. Assimilation time is defined as the number of times during the week that a class meets. This study examined whether students would perform better in a 50-minute class that met three days a week versus a 75-minute class that met just two days a week. Assimilation time did make a difference (t-test, p = 0.0693). High-attending students, that is students that attend class more that ninety percent of the time, performed better with more assimilation time that high-attending students in sections with less assimilation time However, for "medium-attending" students there was no difference whether students attended class in a 50-minute class that met three days a week or a 75-minute class that met just two days a week.
