Abstract [en]

Is the attendance of students important for their results? Are there differences in attendance depending on the type of instruction? What is the reason that students decide not to attend their classes? As a first step in addressing these questions we have considered the view on attendance as expressed by the students.

We have analysed over 2500 answers to questions about attendance given by students in physics during five subsequent semesters. The students answered questions about why they chose to attend alternatively not attend, to what degree they attended as well as what would make them attend to a higher extent.

The largest groups of answers concern the teaching method, the teacher or different aspects of lack of time. Several of the changes suggested by the students to increase attendance coincide with criteria for research based teaching for effective learning.
