Study Groups

"Students who study in small groups do better on tests than students studying alone."
-- Harvard Assessment Seminar

WHAT IS A STUDY GROUP?
A study group is a small group of students (usually 3-5) who meet regularly once or twice a week to clarify and discuss concepts from course material.

WHAT DO STUDY GROUP PARTICIPANTS DO?
Activities in the study group may include the following:

  • Reviewing class notes and assigned readings
  • Predicting and answering test questions
  • Brainstorming possible essay questions
  • Generating creative ways to organize and learn information

Many students report that talking about course material and quizzing others in the group helps them remember the material better than studying on their own.

HOW TO JOIN A STUDY GROUP IN THREE EASY STEPS:

  1. Stop by the Student Success Center in Hodes or call Tutoring at 816.501.3666 
  2. Stop by the Library/Learning Commons Ruth M. Willcox Tutoring Room

If you would prefer to form your own study group, call us at 816.501.3666, or stop by and see us for information that will explain productive study group strategies.
