ABSTRACT: 

The study aimed to investigate the relationship between class participation, course project, and final grade in the context of online teaching. Correlational research design and a database of students’ attendance and results to get secondary data were used in the study. A random cluster sample of students from the bachelor’s degree program was taken. The study revealed a high positive correlation between class participation and final grade variables (r = .710), as well as between course project and final grade variables (r = .826. The study showed that the total variance of final grade levels explained by class participation points is 50.1%, meanwhile, explained by course project points is 68.0%; the other variance may be explained by other variables. This indicates that class participation and course project points influence strongly the final grade of students’ academic performance.
