By the Numbers

This semester there will be no correlation between attendance and grades in my gen-ed class. My class met 42 times, but I only started keeping track after the second day.

Missed 0-3 classes: 62% of students
Missed 4-7 classes: 29% of students

My grade distribution is way more spread out than my attendance distribution.

I awarded them 1/2 point for each day they came to class, up to a maximum of 15 points. The entire semester is worth 500 points.
