The problem of absenteeism is as old as our institutions of higher learning. The majority of colleges have rules and regulations to cope with the problem. These regulations vary greatly among the various institutions. Some even go far enough only to require the student pass the required tests for the specific course, regardless of class attendance, to receive a grade. I think most colleges have a reasonable system for dealing with the problem of students missing classes. I shall approach the subject from the standpoint that we as teachers are responsible for a great amount of absenteeism. Naturally, class attendance is a direct result of student morale.
