Student’s changing lifestyle, teaching methodology and technology leads to non attendance of lectures at college and university level. Among all factors, whether or not attending lectures affects a student’s exam performance has received considerable attention. In this paper, we conduct a randomized experiment to study the impact of attendance on the performance. This paper correlates attendance and marks. It also correlates attendance and maturity level of students. This is observed that the students who are attending more lectures get good marks in mid semester test and end semester exams. We here select random data of Digital Electronics (EC-204) of fourth semseter class of Rayat & Bahra Institute of Engineering & Bio-Technology, Sahuran. We found that class attendance has produced a positive and significant impact on students’ exam performance. On average, attending lecture corresponds to improvement in exam performance. We here use Two-Way ANOVA for performance analysis.
