A variation on a linear regression model developed by Romer (1993) was used to estimate the relationship between lecture attendance and examination results for second and third year economics students at the National University of Ireland, Galway. While the results show that both lecture attendance and previous results are positively and significantly related to examination results for both classes, the variables are much more important in explaining the examination results of second year students than of third year students. Possible reasons for the variation between the second and third year classes are explored.
