Skipping Economics Classes: A Case Study from Hong Kong
Chong, Terence Tai-Leung; Cheung, Ka-Shing; Hui, Pik-Hung
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v31 n1 p37-42 Feb 2009
This paper investigates the determinants of student attendance of economics classes. Course-specific and individual-specific factors are shown to have significant impacts on class attendance. It was found that female students and overseas students skip classes less often. Surprisingly, students involved in extra-curricular activities attend classes more often than students who are not involved in these activities. (Contains 4 tables.)
