Praise for Increasing Persistence "What a gem! This is a requisite text for enrollment practitioners, higher education scholars, and progressive public policy makers dedicated to understanding the processes involved in increasing student retention and success rates. The authors' data-focused approach identifies many of the best practices and fundamental efforts that can make a positive impact at most colleges and universities. Increasing Persistence provides an ideal organizational framework for developing student retention plans. —Jay W. Goff, vice president of enrollment and retention management, Saint Louis University "Because community colleges have made student persistence to graduation or career certification a national priority, they will find this book an invaluable resource for identifying and implementing practices that have a documented impact on student success." —James Hudgins, president emeritus, South Carolina Technical/Community College System; director, Community College leadership Alliance, University of South Carolina "The authors have crafted a highly-readable and much-needed synthesis of the complex literature on college student persistence and completion, and present a fresh model for student success that will be of interest to applied practitioners. This book is not only critical reading for all stakeholders in higher education, but also an easily accessible required text for graduate students of the discipline." —Toni Strollo Holbrook, associate dean of the college, Rollins College "The authors provide a focused and contextualized view of college student success that tells us not only what matters but also reminds us why it matters to individual students, educators, and society as whole." —Margot Saltonstall, associate director for assessment enrollment management and student affairs, Northern Arizona University

The purpose of this book is threefold. First to identify and understand the individual contribution of the components in the Pang (2008) model of metacognitive expertise that influences the acquisition of effective study skills; with effectiveness measured by academic success in cognate courses. Second, to present a well-defined and novel curriculum, where none currently exists, to teach study skills based on embedding the most relevant components of the model, as determined by factor analysis in the first goal, into the instructional design and pedagogy of the new curricula. Thirdly, for educators to implement the curriculum in study skill and academic success courses as well as use the metacognitive expertise model and the metacognitive expertise assessment tool (the ME-AT) in their cognate courses to promote and meaningful and effective learning strategies.

Finally... a different type of learning and study skills textbook! This one-of-a-kind text teaches college students how to become more self-directed learners. Students learn about human motivation and learning as they improve their study skills. A framework organized around six components related to academic success--motivation, methods of learning, time management, control of the physical and social environment, and performance--makes it easy for students to understand what they need to do to become more successful in the classroom. Study skills are treated as a serious academic course--theory and research to help learners understand what factors determine or influence successful learning are combined with effective, field-tested exercises, follow-up activities, and appendices that assist students in observing and changing their own behavior. Motivation and Learning Strategies for College Success: A Self-Management Approach does not offer "recipes" for success, lists of "quick tips," or fancy design elements. Rather, the focus is on relevant information and carefully designed features to help students to identify the components of academic learning that contribute to high achievement, to master and practice effective learning and study strategies, and then to complete self-management studies whereby they are taught a process for improving their academic behavior. *A model based on the six components students need to control to become successful learners is used to organize the content of the textbook. This organization makes it easier for students to understand what factors determine their academic success and what they need to do to change their behavior. *An overview of important research and theory helps students understand the reasons why they are asked to use different study and learning strategies. Students are more motivated to learn when their study skills course is conducted as a real academic course, not as a remedial experience. *Exercises in each chapter help students observe and evaluate their own learning and study skills, and detailed follow-up activities at the end of each chapter engage students in applying the content to their own academic learning. The purpose of these experiences is to encourage self-observation and evaluation--an important first step in changing behavior. *Beginning in Chapter 3, the first follow-up activity identifies a topic to include in a self-management study. The appendices provide information on how to conduct such a study, along with three examples of self-management studies conducted by students. *Student Reflections sections in each chapter allow students to read about the experiences of others students as they attempt to change their behavior and become more successful in college. *Reviews of specific procedures for using each learning strategy are provided at the end of each chapter. This aid is particularly useful for students when they need a quick review of how to implement a given strategy. *Key Points at the end of each chapter highlight the important ideas. *A Glossary of key terms is provided; key terms are presented in bold the first time they appear in the text. *A separate Instructor's Manual includes lecture notes, exercises, and test questions. In addition, it provides information to help students develop a motivation and learning strategies portfolio and conduct a self-management study to improve their learning and study skills.
