  • The effect of goal-setting and other interventions on study success: Comparing the (combined) effect of different interventions at RSM and EUR

    The gender and ethnicity gap in academic achievement constitutes one of today’s key social problems. Prior research has shown that an evidence-based online goal-setting intervention can boost academic performance of students, particularly for males and ethnic minority students, decreasing the performance gap (Schippers, Scheepers, & Peterson, 2015). The current study builds on this and assesses the effects of a combination of interventions (goal setting, study choice meetings and a N=N) on the study results of subgroups of students. The idea is that academic performance of minorities and male students will most enhanced by the combination of two of these three intervention (SCM and goal-setting).
