This was an abstract about a qualitative study that looked at the relationship between doing well in school and feeling good about oneself. This study used a two-tailed hypothesis that if students who were failing their classes used certain study methods, they could better their grades. Bettering their grades would therefore better their self esteem. To support and prove this hypothesis, the researcher kept track of the students' grades before and after learning the new studying techniques, and also kept track of the students' self esteem levels based on how they felt. Then the researchers go on to state that this technique can be applied in general to anyone, whether they are students or not. I think that to prove their point better, they should have tried out the techniques on adults who were not in college in order to prove that this actually could be applied to all people and that they were not just making an educated guess.
