Using Study Groups

Form the Study Group

Check with the instructor to ensure study groups are allowed. Then find classmates to join and determine if you will meet in person or online. Ask others to join or post signs with contacts to get members.

Assign Roles

Make plans to have a scheduler and someone to bring an agenda for each meeting. Take turns preparing study sheets and/or sample test questions, and bring those to meetings for discussion.

Sample Study Group Agenda

  1. Review a study sheet and talk it through
  2. Discuss questions members have
  3. Work problems and discuss
  4. Quiz each other with sample questions
  5. Review final questions

Use Resources

Work with a tutor together ( Ask the instructor for other materials you could use to practice to take sample quizzes. Find quiz materials under Study Apps in CSAS’s Resource page to try.
