Reality Check: Helping to Manage Student Expectations
By: Maryellen Weimer, PhD

Most students begin college, the academic year, and new courses motivated and optimistic. Many first-year students expect to do well because they were successful in high school. Some are right, but others will only find similar success if they work much harder than they did in high school. Yet most start out expending the same level of effort. They will talk with their classmates and convince each other that an exam covering three chapters can't be that hard, so they put off studying and then "look over" the chapters the night before-happily dealing with any and all interruptions and distractions.
