Why Your Students Might NOT Be Reading

29 08 2013

booksmallIt’s a busy time of year as we ramp up for Fall 2013. Most of us have textbooks or articles that we assign as critical components of our course.

We thought you might be interested in a recent study “Why University Students Don’t Read: What Professors Can Do to Increase Compliance” by Mary Hoeft.

If you think reading is essential to your student’s success, you might be interested to read that this study suggests graded journals and quizzes will greatly impact the rate of reading compliance.  It might be worth taking a few minutes to look over this study.
