The extent of student’s learning in academics may be determined by the grades a student earns for a period of learning has been done. It is believed that a grade is a primary indicator of such learning. If a learner earns high grades it is concluded that they may also have learned a lot while low grades indicate lesser learning. However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would account for the grades. No single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades. It has been an interplay of so many factors – gender, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s educational attainment, social status, number of siblings, birth order, etc. In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are a variable of academic performance. However, at this point in time, the researchers would like to investigate the possible relationship of study habits and the factors affecting it to the academic achievement of under graduate education students of Xavier University- Ateneo de Cagayan. The investigation of on this area thus becomes a real and compelling motivation for the researchers to conduct this study.

Factor Affecting Study Habit

...When you are learning English as a second language, it is important to learn through the use of good habits. Any student, whether learning to drive or learning a new language, will need to make sure they are learning good habits and not bad ones. Once Bad habits are formed, they are extremely difficult to break, and it will make learning that little bit harder. If you are learning English as a second language through self-teaching methods rather than going to a class, it is important to find the right resources to help you. For example, just reading a translation book will not help you with your pronunciation. You might think that your pronunciation of certain words and phrases is correct, but once you are faced with a native speaker, you may find that you were wrong. Good pronunciation is a good habit you will want to make sure you keep. Why You Should Work On Pronunciation Pronunciation is extremely important when learning English as a second language. It is the pronunciation that allows you to communicate easily with others. More importantly, it allows others to understand you. It is vital that you listen to English speakers, whether that is an English speaking CD to go with a book, or in a classroom. There are lots of English words that are confusing unless you know how to pronounce them. Often, in English, there are words that sound similar, but are not spelt the same way. Also, there are many words that when you look at them, offer you no clues as to...

Poor Study Habit

...Last minute term usually is known as the period just before a significant or concluding moment such as a deadline, due date or scheduled event. But in term of study, last minute is known as cramming. In Commonwealth countries this technique usually occurs during the revision week (week before exams), also known as “swotvac” or “stuvac” In education, cramming or last minute study (also known as mugging or swotting, from word swot, similar to "sweat", meaning "to study with determination") is the practice of working intensively to absorb large volumes of informational material in short amounts of time. It is often done by students in preparation for upcoming exams, especially at the last minute. Cramming is often discouraged by educators because the hurried coverage of material tends to result in poor long-term retention of material, a phenomenon often referred to as spacing effect. H.E. Gorst(year) stated in his book, 'The Curse of Education', “as long as education is synonymous with cramming on an organized plan, it will continue to produce mediocrity.” Generally considered as a negative study technique, cramming is becoming more and more common among students both at the secondary and post-secondary level. Pressure to perform well in the classroom and engage in extracurricular activities in addition to other responsibilities often results in the cramming method of studying. Cramming is a widely-used study skill performed in preparation for an examination or other...

... word and during the examination, be connected to the familiar word and then you will remember the difficult term. For example, Google Chrome, you can simply relate that to your bedroom and call it Google Room, so everytime you will recall Google Room then the terms Google Chrome will take over. 5. When dealing with number memorization or number arrangement, always divide that group of numbers into three or four or what you prefer to have and do the memorization by division. The best example here is your Phone Number, for example is 0901-234-5678, first you need to memorize the first four, then the second three and so on and so fort. 6. When studying, do not force yourself to memorize or remember that information or data in your lectures. Always remember, when studying you must swallow the words well, digest them well and stored them well, not forcely but willingly. 7. This is really a have-to-do after every studying. When you have a chance, you need to grab a partner and let him/her ask some question that relates to your study. The best thing to do here is to let your partner see and hold your hard copy of your lessons and let him/her ask. I called this part, the pre-Q&A section of studying. In this way, even if you cannot answer the question that your partner throw, but you can remember that especially when it comes out in the true examination. Through that, you can identify the right answer. These seven habits i have came from my personal experiences and......

...Studies: Knowledge is the essence of smart thinking. No matter how much raw intelligence you have, you are not going to succeed at solving complex problems without knowing a lot. That's why we spend the first 20 (or more) years of our lives in school. Robert Bjork and fellow PT blogger Nate Kornell have explored some of the study habits of college students in a 2007 paper in Psychonomic Bulletin & Review. Research on memory provides a number of important suggestions about the most effective ways to study. One of the most important tips is that students should study by testing themselves rather than just reading over the material. It is also important to study over a period of days rather waiting until the last minute to study. Kornell and Bjork's studies suggest that only about 2/3 of college students routinely quiz themselves, and a majority of students study only one time for upcoming exams. Of course, guidelines from memory research come from studies in idealized circumstances. Researchers bring participants (many of whom are college students) into a lab and ask them to learn material. Perhaps the recommendations drawn from these studies are not that helpful for real students dealing with real courses. To address this question, Marissa Hartwig and John Dunlosky related the study habits of college students to their grade point average (GPA) in a 2012 paper in Psychonomic Bulletin & Review. They asked students about a number of...

First Avenue, Highland Park, NJ 08904, 732846-6850 Eileen Stec, Instruction & Outreach Librarian, Douglass Library, Rutgers, New Brunswick, NJ 08901, 848-932-5009 Hannah Kwon, PhD Student, Rutgers SC&I, New Brunswick, NJ 08901 Abstract Despite the considerable attention paid to the need to increase the information literacy of high school students in preparation for the transition to college, poor research skills still seem to be the norm. To gain insight into the problem, library instruction environments of nineteen high schools were explored. The schools were selected based on whether their graduates did well or poorly on information-skills assignments integrated in a required first-year college course. The librarians in the nineteen schools were asked to characterize their working relationships with teachers, estimate their students’ information-literacy achievement, and provide data on their staffing and budgets. Findings suggest that school librarians are seldom in a position to adequately collaborate with teachers and that their opportunities to help students achieve information literacy are limited. Introduction The study reported in this paper was inspired by observations made by students in the Master’s in Library and Information...

...Chapter II REVIEW RELATED LITERATURE The effects of students’ living environments have been studied for many years to analyze students living environment factors that influenced the students’ academic results which can either be positive or negative. Dakin’s (2008) study on College Success among Students Who Reside in Different Environment is an example of a study about the student’s environment, which focused on academic study habits, and student satisfaction. His study attempts to uncover environmental influences on a college student’s ability to succeed. The environmental conditions that were found if duplicated to a larger student population could benefit future college students’ decisions about their living arrangements while attending college. Kizlik (1997) stated that each student doesn’t have the same study needs. They study differently, and there are some study habits that works for one student but may not work for another. However, there are some general ways that seem to produce good results. No one would argue that every subject that the student have to take is going to be so interesting that studying it is not work but pleasure. Keleey (1997) said that there are also factors that the student must consider in choosing his or her study place. One factor is the time of day. A bad study environment can distract a person. If the student is uncomfortable with his or her environment, due to some causes like the temperature is too hot or too cold, it might disturb the...

... that of a hothouse, and the architecture as strange as the vegetation" (Trevelyan 1876: 334). There was a salute of fifteen guns when he set his foot on the beach! Macaulay's initial reaction was one of amazement how the dispossessed Rajahs and Nawabs now submitted to the suzerainty of the British, and meekly "preserved the forms of royalty," and be satisfied with 'the privilege of occasionally sending letters of condolence and congratulation to the King of England, in which (they called themselves) his Majesty's good brother and ally" (Trevelyan 1876: 336). Trevelyan points out that Macaulay reminded himself "he was in a region where his countrymen could exist only on the condition of their being warriors and rulers" (Trevelyan 1876: 335). 8. TO NILGIRIS VIA MYSORE: 400 MILES ON THE SHOULDERS OF MEN Within seven days of his arrival in Madras he left for the Nilgiris via Bangalore-Mysore. He wrote, "I traveled the whole four hundred miles between this (Ootacamund) and Madras on men's shoulders. I had an agreeable journey on the whole" (p. 341). All through his stay in India, Macaulay kept up with his study of European classics even as he continued to consider Indian arts, sciences, and theology as not so worthy of pursuit. Macaulay was particularly very critical of the Christian converts from caste Hindus in south India who refused to have the Lord's Supper with the converts from the low castes. He wrote once, "it was hardly worth the while of so many good men to come......
