Affects of student attendance on performance in undergraduate materials and manufacturing modules
Naher, Sumsun; Looney, Lisa; Brabazon, Dermot
This paper investigates the class attendance of second year, third year and fourth year students and their overall performance at the school of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering in Dublin City University (DCU). An investigation was recently conducted into the delivery of different module which was presented to a group of second year, third year and fourth year engineering students at DCU. Attendance in the class was recorded and the continuous assessment results and the final overall performances were investigated with their attendance. Student performance on Strength of materials – part 1 (SM1), Strength of materials part - 2 (SM2), Mechanics of Materials and Machine (MMM) and Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Processes (AMMP) modules are presented in this paper. This paper presents an examination of some of the factors affecting the overall results of these students. Factors evaluated include attendance of the student, as well as individual performance in continuous assessment and examination. Overall attendance at the lecture, the organised seminar series, and practical work were recorded. Results indicate a direct link between attendance and marks awarded. Students with higher attendance achieved better grades.
