A Case Against Compulsory Class Attendance Policies in Higher Education.
St. Clair, Karen L.
Innovative Higher Education, v23 n3 p171-80 Spr 1999
Compulsory attendance policies have been instituted in higher education with the expectation that academic achievement will improve, but empirical research on this relationship is equivocal. One theory of motivation posits that students' motivational beliefs, classroom context, and student behaviors are important variables in academic achievement. A case against compulsory attendance policies, based on research and this theory, is presented. (Author/MSE)
