Study Behavior and Academic Achievement. ASHE Annual Meeting 1979 Paper.
Tollefson, Nona; And Others
The relationship of self-reported study behaviors, affect toward the course, test anxiety, and past achievement to final examination performance were investigated. Subjects were students in Education who enrolled in an undergraduate measurement course. Six study behavior factors in combination with the affect, anxiety, and past achievement variables were used to predict scores on the course final. The six study factors examined were: (1) participation in an organized study group; (2) using the teacher as a resource person; (3) preparation for class; (4) preparation for exams; (5) reviewing material after each class; and (6) using formative evaluation techniques. Multiple regression analysis yielded a significant Multiple R. Past achievement explained the largest proportion of the variance in final examination scores, but study behavior factors II (using the teacher as a resource person) and VI (using formative evaluation procedures) yielded significant partial correlations. Statistical data are included. (Author/MSE)
