Methodology adoptedThe whole process started with a brain-storming session (which also included a exploratory research) to find out the reasons for the bunking of lectures. Some of the reasons which were correlated were grouped into a single factor23 factors were short-listed and the same was surveyed by conducting a secondary research (via emails and printed surveys) on BIMTECH as well as students from other colleges.100 responses were collected and a Pareto chart was drawn using the cumulative percentages generatedAround 14 factors (refer to excel sheet) were found to be causing 80% of the reasons of bunking the lectures.
