Abstract

Out of a list of 60 items having to do with study habits and study conditions, as are used in certain tests, 44 related to high or low-grade-average categories. Fifty-five per cent of the items were found to differentiate boys only while 26.1 per cent differentiated girls only. Approximately 10 per cent were equivalent in placing the two sexes and about 10 per cent operated in an opposite way. There is some evidence that good study habits are more important in college than in high school for attaining good grades. The study also suggests the need for an evaluation of all questionnaire techniques for determining study habits and indicates separate treatment of the sexes in developing a primary criterion.
