I'm not sure I can give you a lot of information, but we use the Study Behavior Inventory, Version 2.0, Copyright 200 Randall A. Marvin.  It is the computer-based system.  There is a paper and pencil version as well.  Since this was installed before I started here, I probably cannot help you with startup information, but I'm sure the company can walk you through costs, installs, etc.  I'm fairly certain we have a site license for this, because our IT department is able to install it on computers as needed.  It consists of 46 questions and takes about 10 minutes for students to complete.  It assesses students on 8 separate areas of study behaviors (time management, reading, writing skills, note taking, listening, etc). If a student scores below 40th percentile in any area, the report gives some suggestions for improvement.  It's not a perfect instrument, but I like that it's quick and it makes a great starting point for conversations with students.  If you have other questions for me, let me know!

For the last few years we have used the Study Behavior Inventory.

Hi Thomas,

We are trying to improve our program for first year students on
probation.
 Would you mind sharing the academic strategies assessment that you use?

Thanks!

work
