At the beginning of the year—and at the beginning of a new term—it’s natural for students to start thinking about how they might maintain or improve their success in college.
To hone their college success skills, students might ask their peers what they’re doing to “raise the bar” academically. It’s also instructive for students to consider some steps they could take, but haven’t yet implemented.
In an effort to understand students’ study habits—and with a desire to share these insights with you and your students—we recently sent out the latest version of our Student Engagement Insights survey. Among the many questions posed in the survey, we asked: “Beyond completing assigned coursework (e.g. readings and homework), what steps do you take to ensure that you succeed in a class?” Nearly twenty thousand students responded. Below, we talk about their answers and outline some tips that can help your students adopt some of these strategies for success.
