Approaches to Measuring Attendance and Engagement (2018)
Journal Article

In this paper, we argue that, where we measure student attendance, this creates an extrinsic motivator in the form of a reward for (apparent) engagement and can thus lead to undesirable behaviour and outcomes. We go on to consider a number of other m... Read More about Approaches to Measuring Attendance and Engagement.
