School test score improvement.

graph of reading score improvement at Brixton, England

Brixton, England

Two groups of 12 pupils each were given before and after reading tests using the Daniels and Diack standard reading tests. One group was then given a very short course (totaling only 8 to 10 hours over 12 days) in reading skills based on the data that is in all of the following books: Study Skills for Life, Learning How to Learn or Basic Study Manual. The other group continued their normal studies. Increases in reading ability (1.29 years average gain) occurred in pupils who were given the Reading course while no change in reading ability (0.03 loss) occurred in those who did not do the course.

What Students are Saying:

"...I can thoroughly learn every aspect of a subject, eliminate whatever barriers and confusions that come up and become confident that I know how to apply the data in real life." - M. M., High School Student

"Learning how to get past the study barriers is just what I needed to know, and I think that it will help me get much further in life." - C. R., High School Student

"I will be a whole different student and all of my grades will go up. I can even teach what I have learned to other friends." - K. H., High School Student

"I am understanding everything. I am making great gains... Before I never fully understood subjects I studied in school." - E. S., Middle School Student

"It was really fun and I learned a lot. I hope I get more courses like that. Thank you so, so, so much and I'm happy it's done!" - M. B., Elementary School Student




What Teachers are Saying:

"I have been a teacher for 25 years, and I have taught in all the levels of education from the primary to secondary to tertiary institutions in my country, but I have always thought that something was wrong with our achievements both as teachers or learners. Why for instance would children who came to school looking bright, enthusiastic and ambitious become sullen and vindictive against society? Why would a child want to withdrawal from school when he knows all the advantages education gives to people? I could not imagine.

Now I know why? We have been doing all the wrong things in our education. It is amazing that anyone successfully passed through the system at all. Browbeating anyone into learning is no way to teach. Our kids must first know why they are learning (i.e. learning for life) and then want to learn so that the learning they acquire can be useful to them and to society in a practical way. Learning must be achieved one hundred percent not ninety-nine. In fact, we insist on better quality from our industries than from our schools, it is time to put in place measures that will insure one-hundred percent learning " - B. S. A., Teacher

"Discovering Study Technology at this point in my career/life, I'm able to take the technology back to my middle school classroom and greatly improve study skills for all learners regardless of their levels/abilities." - P. S., Teacher

"It is amazing the effectiveness Study Technology has in identifying my students' problems and how quickly they can be resolved when you know what they are just from what you observe." - B. N., Teacher

"I have also gained useful tools to help [students] to break past barriers of learning so that [they] could love to learn not only in a classroom setting but for life outside the classroom also." - T. M., Educator
