BA¶HRT, RaÃºl; ARCE, Paola; WALKER, Daniel and ROMERO, Cecilia. Relationship Between Behavioral Patterns and Academic Performance in College Students. RAP [online]. 2010, vol.8, n.2, pp. 157-190. ISSN 2077-2161.
Using a mixed methodology (virtual and face) based on a computerized version of the Personalized System of Instruction (SIP) from Keller (1968) and other teaching tools, is aimed to establish the relationship between patterns of behavior and academic performance evaluations of a quality university. The results showed the potential outcome of the patterns start and end with the SIP and their relationship with the grades in Pre-test Post-test and Final Notal, unlike the data in relation to the pattern of implementation. The findings suggest the importance of diagnostic tools early use to predict the behavior of students regarding the study and take action accordingly. The final goal of the research was to identify opportunities for early intervention to make the learning experience of students an actual event, rewarding and generating motivation.
