Classroom Work Habits

The majority of students have to develop good work habits to perform well academically. Since academic improvements may take a while to materialize, it may be useful to measure student work habits in the shorter term as one way to determine whether students are on track toward improving their achievement. 

Work habits can be measured every three to six months, depending on the length of the program.  To measure success, the work habits of participants can be tracked over time.  Expect to see the most improvement in students demonstrating weaker classroom work habits at baseline.  A segment of students with extremely poor work habits may not make marked improvements, due to confounding issues such as having a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
