Pilot study of the study behavior inventory: Preliminary analysis of a new tool for health science education students


Penni Smith Foster, Natalie White Gaughf

While educational researchers have considered many factors related to academic performance in undergraduate education, the impact of specific study behaviors and skills directly related to improving performance in health science education have been largely overlooked. The purpose of the current study was to examine the preliminary reliability and validity of the study behavior inventory (SBI), a tool used for measuring study behaviors associated with higher academic performance among students in health science education programs
