Seventy-nine undergraduate students were
interviewed in February, 1992, to determine attitudes
about class attendance, class absences, and required
attendance. Three hundred undergraduates were selected
in a random sample; seventy-nine attended one of the
six group interview sessions.
The reasons students gave for skipping classes
included being lazy or tired, dislike of the professor,
material for the class was seen as unimportant, bad or
nice weather, early morning or late afternoon and
evening classes (too tired), or having other things to
do (sometimes work for another class). Class size also
was discussed as having impact on skipping.
