Excerpt from Questionnaire :

¶ … students properly prepare for difficult examinations and long papers like theses and dissertations?

Students will encounter levels of difficulty in their studies that they may be not used to or unprepared for during their first several years of university. Therefore, it is important to properly prepare for the rigors of university academics. How the student prepares depends largely on his or her course load and the subject matter, as well as the student's comfort level with that subject matter. Preparing for exams and long-term papers requires the student to have a great deal of self-discipline and a good sense of timing. Avoiding procrastination is essential. The student needs to identify weak areas in his or her learning as soon as possible, and devote extra time to strengthening those areas. Maintaining a daily academic discipline, such as daily course readings or laboratory time, will help keep the student mentally prepared to meet the challenges that the exams and long papers present. Both "practice testing" and "studying evenly" have been recommended as important strategies (Grohol, n.d., p. 1).

2. Explain what time management means, and how students can learn time management?

Time management entails understanding how to schedule one's


Managing time involves discipline and avoiding behaviors that waste time. Anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems can impede time management and should be dealt with in a timely fashion so that the student can perform at his or her best. Time management means being strict about how long to spend on each activity, so that no one activity consumes the bulk of a person's time. This does not necessarily mean that the student must segment each day; rather, time management can be a long-range plan involving both short-term and long-term goals. If it helps, students can use time management software. Avoiding Facebook and other time-wasters during time scheduled for work is critical to the student's success. "Postpone unnecessary activities until the work is done!" ("Time Management," n.d.).

3. What is plagiarism, why is it wrong, and how can students avoid it?

By the time a student enters university, he or she should be well aware of what plagiarism is, and how to avoid it. Plagiarism is "the uncredited use (both intentional and unintentional) of somebody else's words or ideas," (Stolley, Brizee & Paiz, 2014). However, if students still struggle with their work to the extent that they are tempted to plagiarize, they may need to scale back their schedule even if that means extending their academic career. Students who plagiarize unintentionally should remind themselves of proper citation guidelines and the need to give credit any time a unique idea has been borrowed and incorporated into a student's work. The school library has resources related to plagiarism, and may offer anti-plagiarism courses or…

There are, however, admitted limits to the study. Firstly, the sampling size was relatively small and from a homogeneous population. There may also be correlational factors that affect the result which do not reflect the causation of higher rates of student literacy who text.
