Skipping Class

The level of difficulty certainly contributes to how often the class is skip. I attended my intro to psych class a grand total of 4 times because the lecturer had a really boring monotone and the class was dead easy. The course had a quiz that could be used to prepare for the test. And the actually test questions were taken directly from the quiz prep software. Sooo easy. I did hear though that some colleges are beginning to take attendance via student ID cards. Which could significantly decrease the ability to skip without consequences.
