A Study of the Note-Taking Skills of First-Year Community College Students
Schierloh, Jane
NADE Digest, v1 n2 p14-18 Fall 2005
The author, a student adviser in a Student Support Services (TRIO) program, took an introductory psychology course in order to study students' note-taking behaviors. The most important finding was that students copied the terminology the instructor wrote on the board, but failed to take notes on the examples he used to clarify the terms. Consequently, they were unprepared for the multiple-choice tests which required students to link terms with examples. She then experimented with a new way to share the findings of this study with the students she advises.
