Study Strategies

According to social cognitive theory, learning by example helps students acquire new behaviors quicker by having a demonstration done before. This is a helpful study strategy so when a student tries to perform a task alone, say a hard math problem, if they have done one in class already and have written the steps out with an instructor, it will hypothetically be easier to do once the student goes home to complete his/her homework assignment. Not only is the student learning how to do the task, but they also learn how to think about the task which can also be known as cognitive modeling.

Setting goals allows a student to challenge their self-efficacy. In social cognitive theory, it is believed learners are more likely to do certain tasks if they are able to execute those tasks successfully. Setting goals allows students to expand on this. For example, if a student is studying for the math portion of the SATs, they may set up a goal to complete 10 practice word problems a day within 45 minutes. They can set this goal and try to achieve it until it is possible. The student not only is learning, but they are ensuring they are going to be successful in their time studying.


Set Goals


Mnemonics are a part of cognitive psychology's principle of long-term memory storage. It serves as an effective study tool because students will attach meaning to new information which does not make much sense to them. Mnemonics also sometimes provide organization. For example, a student could use a song they enjoy and switch the lyrics to make sense of what they learned earlier in anatomy class.

Asking questions is a type of study strategy which utilizes the idea of elaboration. According to cognitive psychology, the more students elaborate on new material, the more effectively they will remember it. An example of this would be if a student was reading a passage out of a textbook and stopped every few paragraphs to ask questions about the paragraph they just read. Questions could be around how they feel about what they are reading or what the passages reminds them of in their life.

    Wow, interesting and useful info, thanks! I've read so many study strategies, but still have a problem with managing all the tasks. Students receive so many tasks that sometimes it's hard, or even impossible to do everything. Especially when it's written assignments. Sometimes I prefer using writing services because otherwise there is no chance to do it. There are so many writing services that it took me a lot of time to find a good one, luckily I came across one review which helped me. It's the review of the

    Great post! Thanks for sharing. Guess these techniques can help many students to achieve better results in their studies! I can only add that modern online tutoring services like,, , etc are also a great help for students. You can consult a tutor whenever you need (even late at night when you are preparing for an exam or doing a complicated home assignment) and get the answers to all your questions.

    It's a fascinating post, thanks! I think now is an excellent time to think about our study strategies.

    To study abroad, not only do a lot of assignments and essays need to be done on weekdays, but for most international students, making presentations is even more difficult. International students do not quite understand how to clearly relay a message within the specified time, and ensure that the speech is smooth and interesting, and at the same time attract the attention of the audience from beginning to end. This is very difficult for local students who are not good at speaking, let alone Chinese students. And have to use all useful auxiliary visual service tools, such as videos, pictures, etc., in order to make the audience memorable. Presentation can not only help you achieve this goal, but also make the audience understand your speech's point of view. A well-made, clear-thinking PPT can make your speech more exciting.
