The Effects of a Study Skills Workshop on Second Semester Freshmen on Academic Probation.
Pierog, John J.
Thirty-six second semester freshmen students on academic probation were matched according to sex, high school class rank, S.A.T. scores, and IQ. They were divided into two groups: control and experimental. Both groups were administered the Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes, after which the experimental group participated in four one-hour study skills sessions. The members of the control group did not participate in any program. After the last study skills session both groups were again administered the Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes. When the differences in scores of the pre-tests and post-tests of both groups were compared, there was a significant improvement in the scores of the experimental group. (Author)
