The aim of this study is to provide further evidence as to what drives student performance. Numerous studies (for example see Launius 1997, Thomas and Higbee 2000, Clump et al. 2003, Moore, 2003 and Gump 2005) have examined the link between tutorial attendance and student performance within a tertiary setting. Whilst the general conclusions are that reduced attendance is linked to decreased performance, these studies are unable to determine whether it is tutorial attendance or some other unobservable factor which influences performance.
