Analysis of Class Attendance Policies and Grade-Related Contingencies in Graduate-Level Education Administration Courses
Jensen, Chet
Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, v16 p119-131 Fall 2004
Professors of Educational Administration spend an inordinate amount of time tracking student attendance and calculating absences into final grades. A study of student attendance in one educational administration program at a medium-sized public institution of higher education in California concluded that: (1) negative and positive grade-related contingencies increased student attendance, (2) neutral (optional) attendance decreased student attendance, and (3) the imposition of grade-rated attendance contingencies did not significantly improve the academic achievement of students. The study included an analysis of student attendance during six semesters and an assessment of the perceptions of graduate students regarding instructor-imposed grade-related contingencies.
