Increasing classroom attendance rates is important to improving success in developmental mathematics courses. Our results indicated that absence rates begin to increase after the first exam. Furthermore, the number of absences gradually increased throughout the semester and a higher proportion of class meeting time was missed in classes that met three days per week compared to two days per week. Thus, attempts to emphasize to students the importance of classroom attendance on course grades needs to begin before the first test. When absences were measured by proportion of class meeting time, effect of absences on students' failing the course was higher for classes that met two days per week compared to classes that met three days per week.
