''Are level of preparation and lecture attendance related in the role of influencing students' academic performance?''
( 2019, Vol. 39 No.3 )
Researchers in higher education have empirically demonstrated the positive influence of level of preparation and lecture attendance on students' academic performance. However, no researcher has yet investigated if level of preparation and lecture attendance complement to or substitute of one another. Based on data collected from undergraduate management students in a public university in the Midwest, we demonstrate a complementary relationship between lecture attendance and level of preparation. We also found that this complementary relationship is more prevalent for higher-performing students. We suggest possible reasons for the interesting results, and outline the implications of the results for higher education.
Keywords: level of preparation, lecture attendance, academic performance, complements
