Courses in the software engineering masters degree program at Mercer University are offered via asynchronous learning nets to students who may attend as many or as few face-to-face class meetings as they choose. As part of our assessment program, we investigated the impact of attendance at the face-to-face class meetings on learning outcomes for individual students. We found essentially no correlation between learning outcomes and attendance. The aggregated data used may conceal dependencies on other factors.
