Since the announcement of the Complete College Georgia initiative in 2011, there is an increased focus on structuring course delivery in a manner that improves student success. Given this environment, I have moved from optional to incentivized participation beginning with the Fall 2013 semester. Utilizing performance on final exams as an indicator of success, the results for individual students under an optional participation condition prior to Fall 2013 will be compared to the results under the incentivized participation condition since Fall 2013 while controlling for student quality by including cumulative G.P.A. and credit hours in the model. My hypothesis is that there is a positive correlation between incentivized participation and student success.
