dc.description.abstract In light of the continued need to help students who are having academic troubles in higher education, the primary purpose of this research study was to examine the differences in study skills between those college students enrolled in EDPSY 100 and those not enrolled in EDPSY 100. The overall goal of the "Study Skills for College Students" course is to help students acquire the knowledge and skills they need to take more responsibility for their own learning.In addition, this research study assessed which study strategies the EDPSY 100 students learned during a 15-week study skills course.The study skills' scores came from a self-reported measure, the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI), which was developed by Weinstein, Palmer, and Schulte (1987).For this study, 105 EDPSY 100 students (49 females, 56 males) and 114 non-EDPSY 100 students (94 females, 20 males) were asked to complete the following: a consent form, pre-LASSI, post-LASSI, and demographic questionnaire.A multivariate analysis of variance was used to determine significant gains in learning strategies for EDPSY 100 students following a 15-week course in study skills training. The initial findings of the analysis revealed that the EDPSY 100 and non-EDPSY 100 students significantly differed. However, there were no significant differences between the two groups in their use of study strategies after the EDPSY 100 students completed a one-semester study skills course. en_US
