The Effects of a Study Skills Workshop upon Study Techniques, Study Organization, and Study Motivation for Resident Freshmen. Core Module Curriculum Development.
Mussano, Frank
The effects of four two-hour study skills seminars on study organization, study techniques, and study motivation were investigated for 1977 fall semester resident freshmen at York College of Pennsylvania. Forty-four interested volunteers were divided equally into a treatment and control group on the basis of pretest scores on the Study Techniques Survey, Study Organization Survey, and Study Motivation Survey, sex, age, class status, and high school rank. All subjects were posttested immediately following the final seminar of the workshop. Statistical T-analysis revealed that those resident freshmen participating in the study skills workshop significantly improved in all three study skills areas tested as compared to the control group. It was recommended that an ongoing campus-wide developmental course in study skills be established, and that further research on study skills programming examine the resulting effects on overall satisfaction, grades and attrition rates.
