The aim of this project was to investigate the trend of student attendance over an academic year. This involved computing a linear trend model of a variable, based on attendance for different years and class groups. In order to carry out the analysis, extraction of the data and pre-processing techniques were required. The analysis was implemented on sixteen class groups in total, over five academic years. It was found that the trend model had an average R2 value of 0.451 and a standard deviation of 0.273. The results from the analysis indicate that the trend model can be effective in fitting the data, however, more complex models may be necessary to increase performance and consistency.
