It has been a major concern between the students and the administration. The things are that the professors want the students to attend all the classes in a claim that they want to teach the students directly instead of only teaching a handful of students. This is contrary to the experience of the students because they want the freedom that they will have the authority to select which classes they want to attend. This becomes even more difficult because the school has given the lecturers the authority to select whether the students should all come or they have a choice. Thus a controversial situation as some professors is strict while others are freestyle. On speaking to some of the professors, they wish that all the students should attend the lectures but on approaching the students with this same topic, they think they should have the choice of thinking. This, as I came to find out, is because they believe that as long as a class work can be performed out of the room then they do not have to attend. They only have to attend the lab classes because the results have to be looked for and analyzed individually. It is very important to study and understand which of the two is correct or better put, it is important to understand who made a stronger argument? The main argument of the professors is that the students need to see this teaching first hand. That is if many students attend a class, they are able to ask questions as to what they did not understand and they are helped. However, if 2|Page Writing claims they do not attend these classes, they do not grasp the concept and so the whole teaching process becomes difficult for any of them to comprehend. They end up having to learn from their friends. This is a very great disadvantage according to the professors. However, the students share a different view. This is to say that they believe that they should have a choice as to which classes they should attend. This, as I came to find out, is because they believe that as long as a class work can be performed out of the room then they do not have to attend. They only have to attend the lab classes because the results have to be looked for and analyzed individually. Some professors, however, do not implement this, but instead; give bonus points to those who attend. These arguments led to the development of some policies that would help reduce this pressure. Professors came up with bonus points. Bonus points are marks that are given to students who fully attend the classes or at least three-quarters of it. Some of the professors saw a better opportunity to capture the students and created the participation policy. This is where students are able to receive points that will be included in the exams and so many will attend and also try and participate so as to earn points. There is also the part where the professors came up with weekly CATs and RATs which will be used as bonus points and this prompts students to attend classes in order to grasp the concept. These non-mandatory policies are very useful to us lecturers as we do not have to worry about attendance. However, they do not capture everyone. This is because some students just attend these classes just to receive the bonus points. In summary, I strongly believe that students must attend classes. In case one does not understand the concept, they are given an option of asking questions, thus learning becomes sufficient. 3|Page Writing claims 4|Page Writing claims Worked cite Verbeeten, M.

Should The College Implement A Mandatory Attendance Policy?
Introduction
Before we embark on any discussions, it is important to note the significance of the topic
under discussion. The topic above explains the tug of war that has always been there between the
students and the professors, this is because they all share different views as to how matters should
be handled when it comes to class attendance. This in return has pushed me as a lecturer to create
a claim study to the whole issue. Mandatory attendance policy is a two-sided argument but it not
only benefits the students but also motivates the professor to teach.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
