Professors don't want to let students to succeed while slacking off. But don't enforce attendance — offer extra credit, require participation or announce quizzes in class. Reward students who are clearly engaged with the material, even if they can’t show up everyday.
Our favorite classes haven't required attendance — they've been worth attending. Those professors' lectures were essential to our success. If a student can skip a class every day and still make an A, shouldn't they be able to?
Blanket attendance policies aren't always enforced well either. One member of the editorial board lost points for lectures she missed — before she had even enrolled in the class. Other systems are easy to spoof by sharing codes or getting signed in by friends.
For some, it's between paying the bills and making it to class. Many classes require subscription services like Squarecap or Arkaive to log attendance and can cost as much as $62. For working students, the costs can quickly add up.
Forcing students to attend class can hurt students' health. Professors risk spreading illness, disenfranchising students who can't afford a doctor's visit and requiring students to disclose conditions they'd rather keep private.
OPINION: Most UT professors require students to attend class in some way. We understand why professors feel the need to penalize students through quizzes, participation or grades for attendance. But using grades to enforce attendance doesn't always work. dailytexanonline.com/2019/03/14/pro…
