dc.description.abstract The study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of a Study Skills Program in improving the performance of grade eight students who had failed in their first term examinations. Four groups were involved: Group “A”—twelve students who participated in a Study Skills course; Group “B”—twelve students who participated in a Supervised Study program; Group “C”—twelve students involved in Pep-Talk sessions; Group “D”—control group of twenty-nine students. All students involved had failed their first term examinations in grade eight. The investigator recommends further research on the question of the effectiveness of Study Skills Programs at the Junior High Level, as the statistics of this study were not significant. The mean changes of the groups were: Group “A”—+0.18; Group “B”—+0.01; Group “C”—+0.23; Group “D”—+0.20.
