PhD Project

Enhancing Student Retention and Academic Performance: The Effects of Guided Reflection on Goals

The current project will make use of an online intervention that has shown to be been extremely successful in raising academic performance and retention rate of students. Especially clearly defined and articulated goals give students purpose and meaning. In the current project, we aim to advance our understanding of these effects by investigating (a) specific changes in student behavior as a result of participating in this program and (b) the extent to which the program enhances academic performance of students in a problem-based learning context.

Academic performance; Study success; Goal-setting; Student retention; On-line intervention; Personal development.
