  • 18. Rachel Cosford TEACHING DEVELOPMENT PROJECT Because it allowed you to compare your a6endance with the rest of the class, which made you want to have good a6endance It visually showed attendance, and showed I wasnt as good as I thought People in the orange/red reacted and realised how little they attended People just made a joke of it, didnt take into account reasons why people were absent. Took 15 minutes out of each lecture, when we could have been learning.

  • 20. Rachel Cosford TEACHING DEVELOPMENT PROJECT I think because my absence was noted instead of being neglected It was irritating and had a very accusatory tone. It was very unsympathetic when I actually had a serious reason for non-attendance I think because it was actually noticed and commented on, it made me make sure I was in the next week
