What is the best way to study?

Exploring what impact different study techniques have on student exam scores and how teachers can guide students’ study habits for success.

Research at the University of Wisconsin (Bartoszewski, 2015) explored the correlation between ten well-known study techniques (Dunloswky et al., 2013) and academic performance.

The research tested how each technique correlated with each other, and final exam scores.

The study involved students (n = 312) from introductory psychology and human development courses who participated through an online survey. Participants were 18 to 42 years old.

The survey included questions about study habits, academic motivation, and classroom experiences. Instructors provided students’ exam scores for analysis alongside self-reported academic measures.
