    1 and 2 mean the same thing, yes. Another verb to use here is "cut" -- she often cut classes.

    3 is fine, but 4 has a verb tense and wordiness problem. Change "goes" to "went" (to match the past tense of the main verb "wore") and then the two sentences will mean the same thing.

    5, 6, and 7 mean approximately the same thing, but are not identical. Close, but not the same!
