Fostering Effective Studying and Study Planning with Study Questions
Wilhelm, Pascal; Pieters, Jules M.
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v32 n3 p373-382 Jun 2007
In a course on biological psychology and neuropsychology, study questions were provided that also appeared as test questions in the course exam. This method was introduced to support students in active processing and reproduction of the study texts, and study planning. Data were gathered to test the hypothesis that study question use would be beneficial to course grades. In addition, the way in which students evaluated the method was studied. It appeared that the number of study questions answered prior to the exam had a positive effect on course grades. Students were generally positive about the use of the questions in terms of their study planning. (Contains 2 tables and 1 note.)
