Abstract

In the summer of 1916 at Iowa State Teachers College the rule of the faculty that one-tenth of a point of credit should be deducted for each unexcused absence in any class became effective. For the three years preceding that time the median percentage of absence per term was 2.2 with a mean variation of.13; immediately after the rule went into effect the median percentage of absence was lowered to 1.45 ±.25, which is a reduction in amount of absence of about one-third.
