Hope to be a good student? Turn hope into reality by setting goals.
Goal setting is a powerful way to improve educational performance by helping to focus effort on specific objectives. Effective goals are specific, measurable, and moderately difficult but still attainable. Writing, reflecting, sharing, and planning for goals increase the likelihood of reaching them.
Get the most out of your education by learning for the right reasons.
Studies show that our motivations for learning affect how we learn. Performance-oriented students mainly seek to demonstrate their skills and receive external validation, while mastery-oriented students care less about what others think and more about improvement and learning.
