The Study Habits Questionnaire measures a wide range of study skills that research has shown to predict academic success. In this survey, you will be asked about everything, from how you take notes and commit information to memory, to the strategies you use to manage your workloads and deal with anxiety during tests and exams. The interactive survey will provide you with three types of feedback both an overall total score, total scores within different domains of study skills, as well as item-by-item feedback on specific skills. After completing the survey, be sure to review results to determine what skills you have mastered and what skills you may wish to improve on further.
It is important to keep in mind that skills can be acquired at any point in your studies. Many students arrive at university without a number of skills that may be expected to have already acquired. Not having learned a skill does not mean that you cannot or that it is too late. In most instances, these skills can be acquire with just a few weeks of effort. In fact, most students will experience some benefits immediate.
