This session aims to show the importance of employing the correct type of 'SNAP' (Student Non-Attendance Policy) if one wants to see improvements in both classroom attendance and retention. Results will be presented of a 15-semester-long ABA study comparing the attendance and retention figures obtained whilst using two different SNAPs. Results showed a 54% reduction in non-attendance and a 74% reduction in attrition when the ‘Physio SNAP’ was re-introduced compared to a ‘Standard SNAP’ (of a type one could expect to find in use in many institutions). The SAAMP a tool which makes effective attendance monitoring easy will also be described.
