    product description

    Study Attitudes and Methods Survey (SAMS) was developed to explore students’ motivation, study habits, and attitudes toward school. The SAMS usefulness in determining non-academic obstacles to school success makes it a valuable preparation exercise for college entrance as well as a counseling tool at the high school level. The results of the SAMS (in conjunction with an ability test) can be used to advise students of the probability of school success and point out areas that need improvement. Use the SAMS to help students improve study habits and replace non-productive attitudes with a more positive approach.
