Teaching and Assessing Study Skills: A Classroom Study.
Oakerson, Peggy Fast
A study skills course was evaluated for effects on results from the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) (D. Mealy, 1988). Subjects were students in a freshman level college study skills course. At pretest, there were 29 students in the treatment condition, and by the post-test 25 students remained. In a followup telephone survey, 21 students participated. Statistically significant differences in pretest and posttest scores were found for Anxiety, Information Processing, Main Ideas, Support Techniques, Self-Testing/Review, Test Strategies, and Preparing for Tests. In addition, providing course work in test strategies was effective in improving grade point average. Scores on the Test Strategies section were significantly correlated to cumulative grade point average. (Contains one table and eight references.) (Author/SLD)
