Self-Managed Studying in College Courses.
Edwards, K. Anthony
In an introductory psychology course, students were taught some principles of "adjustment" using self-management techniques and were required to conduct a self-management project. The four student projects reported herein were specifically designed to improve study skills through use of Premack's principle and stimulus control. Course materials varied according to the student's choice of subject matter in which to improve the quality of work. Two students worked on the coursework in a class within which these projects were required: one read in her American literature class, and one studied electrical engineering material. Reports. from the students indicated success in achieving the desired terminal behavior (increased study skills). (Author/JT)
