Abstract

In this study I evaluate the importance of physically attending lectures in a business statistics course when an online digital learning companion is used. A sample of five sections of business statistics that used the exact same text, lecture format, and algorithmic assignments are used. Overall, I find that students who attend all lectures perform significantly better on exams when compared to students who have been absent. On average, students with multiple absences perform significantly worse on the online component of the course, and students who perform better on the online component tend to score significantly higher on exams.
