Title: Course Learning Strategies for Efficient Student Performance
Author: Stenvinkel Nilsson, Ole; Møller Nielsen, Michael
Abstract: The study analyzes statistically how course performance is influenced by study activity and individual background factors. Some students attend external exam training courses, and it is analyzed how participation in such courses influences grading. The analysis shows some unexpected results, which may serve as student recommendations in terms of choosing personal learning strategy, depending on one’s individual background. Not surprisingly, strong entrance qualifications and class participation and preparation have a strong positive effect on grading performance. More surprisingly, student satisfaction with course and teacher has no significant influence on grades, and participation in exam training courses seems to have a directly negative impact on exam performance.
