Louisiana State U. Faculty Adopts Option to Grade for Attendance

The Faculty Senate at Louisiana State University passed a resolution on Wednesday giving professors the option to factor class attendance into students’ grades, but not requiring them to do so, reports The Advocate, in Baton Rouge, La. The effort was described as a way to help improve retention and graduation rates. If approved, as expected, the new policy would take effect in the fall. Last year administrators at California State University asked professors to consider taking attendance or making it mandatory.
