Helping the High Risk Student in Higher Education: A Description of Research Studies Reporting Success Utilizing Study Skills/Remedial Programs.
Thompson, Mark E.
High risk students in higher education are identified as being marginally qualified to enter and persist. These students are handicapped with low high school grades, poor study habits, low aptitude scores and little ambition to meet academic requirements. Although the process of reversing fixed behavioral patterns is most difficult, several research studies have reported success with study skills/remedial treatments. This article reports on research conducted with high risk students by applying a pre-college treatment or conducting special courses during the academic semester. The data indicates that high risk students can improve upon their predicted grade point average when a study skills/remedial treatment is employed. (Author)
