Abstract

The possible links between attendance and grades in higher education has been well researched, though less so within blended learning, or within sport and exercise science (SES) cohorts. This study explored the relationships between attendance, online course activity time, and the grades of SES cohorts during blended learning, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Overall, both attendance and online course activity time were moderately (rs = 0.43, p < 0.05) and strongly (rs = 0.60; p < 0.05) correlated with grades. Monitoring online activity time may aid in the identification and management of students that are ‘at risk’ of achieving poor grades.
