dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between student attendance and Technical Skill Attainment (TSA) performance for students in an Area Career Center setting. The problem driving this study was a lack of data regarding the relationship between student TSA scores and attendance. With existing nominal level data present, a Spearman’s Rank correlation coefficient was used to determine the relationship between the two variables for the years of 2008-2009, 2009-2010 and 2008-2010 (α = .05). The null hypotheses were not rejected for any of the three data sets: 2008-2009 -.102 (p = .194), 2009-2010 -.015 (p = .869), 2008-2010 -.026 (p = .657), indicating there was no statistically significant relationship between attendance and TSA performance. This study researched the influence of student attendance on TSA performance. From the search of related literature no previous research was found on this topic. This study provided an initial forum for discussion, debate and further research. Continued research may lead to strategies for improving student attendance and TSA performance and achievement.en_US
