Study Group model:
- Study group leaders review course material with students and integrate study strategies—note taking, problem solving, and test preparation—that link course content with cognitive skill development.
- Study group leaders are trained and supervised Rutgers students selected by the course professor; study group leaders are not course instructors and are present only to facilitate a study session.
Study Group participants:
- earn higher average final course grades than if they simply studied alone
- are more actively involved in the course
- have a better understanding of course material
- acquire effective learning strategies
- earn higher grades in the course than students in the same course who do not attend the study group sessions.
