As for Fall 2010 2nd semester GPA, students reporting attending 100% of their classes have higher GPAs than all other students.  GPAs for students attending 90% of their classes are significantly different from those attending 70-80% of their classes.  The number of students reporting less than 60% or less attendance is too small for significant comparisons.

NOTE: This analysis removes one student in Fall 2010 and one student in Fall 2011 because they were the only students who reported attending less than 50% of their classes.

ADDITIONAL FALL 2010 RESULTS:

Students on academic probation(after their first semester) were more likely to self-report attending class less often.
