A Procedure to Establish Self-Pacing Behaviors in Academically Deficient First Year Students.
Opdahl, Chris A.
Research investigating the performance of students enrolled in courses taught by a Personalized System of Instruction (PSI) has tended to support the claim that PSI is a superior teaching method. The present research study isolated the self-pacing aspect of PSI courses and attempted to teach 13 academically deficient first year college students not to procrastinate, possibly the major contributor to high withdrawal rates. The procedure was effective for reducing procrastination. (Author)
