Attendance Policies, Instructor Communication, Student Attendance, and Learning
Snyder, Jason; Frank, Lisa A. C.
Journal of Education for Business, v91 n2 p108-116 2016
The authors utilized a quasiexperimental design across five sections of a managerial communication course (N = 150) to test the role of course policies and student perceptions of the instructor in influencing student absenteeism and three indicators of student learning: grades, affective learning, and cognitive learning. The experimental group received a class attendance policy containing a grade-related contingency. Results suggest that the three indicators of student learning are associated with different predictors. Moreover, the appropriate attendance policy sets the stage for learning.
