Commitment and consistency can promote student course scheduling effectiveness

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using social psychological theory, the authors demonstrate in two studies, one cross sectional and one experimental, commitment interventions for timely course scheduling can significantly hasten coursescheduling behavior. Using a simple intervention, the authors were able to alter a regularly occurring student behavior tied to both retention and timely degree completion. Additional uses for this type of intervention, or other social psychological phenomenon, in student environments are discussed.
