A STUDY ON STUDYING, A REPORT FROM THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE PLANNING CENTER ON STUDENT STUDY FACILITIES.
Stanford Univ., CA. School Planning Lab.
APPROXIMATELY 600 STUDENTS FROM FIVE JUNIOR COLLEGES ANSWERED 100 QUESTIONS CONCERNING WHAT THEY FELT TO BE THE "IDEAL" STUDY FACILITY. ALTHOUGH THE STUDY REVEALED NO REAL CONSENSUS, MOST STUDENTS SEEMED TO PREFER A QUIET, PRIVATE, PLAIN, MODERATELY-SIZED AREA FREE OF TOBACCO SMOKE AND WITH ACCESS TO STUDY MATERIALS. THE SAME STUDENTS INDICATED WHERE THEY STUDY AND WHY THEY STUDY WHERE THEY DO. A DIFFERENT GROUP OF 116 STUDENTS ANSWERED THE SAME TWO QUESTIONS, BUT KEPT A RECORD OF THEIR STUDY HABITS FOR A WEEK TO DOCUMENT THEIR RESPONSES. THE ANSWERS GIVEN BY THE TWO GROUPS WERE SIMILAR. THE VARIETY OF RESPONSES ON ALL QUESTIONNAIRES, HOWEVER, WAS GREAT ENOUGH TO SUGGEST STRONGLY THAT AN "IDEAL" FACILITY WOULD PROVIDE A WIDE VARIETY OF STUDY AREAS. RESULTS OF THE QUESTIONNAIRES WERE RECORDED ON GRAPHS AND TABLES. (AD)
