Title of the article
Time Diary and Questionnaire Assessment of Factors Associated With Academic and Personal
Success Among University Undergraduates
Database where the article was
found
ProQuest
Why did you choose this article?
I thought it was interesting and helpful in that it discussed a variety of ways students could be
successful, including setting goals, which was a topic discussed in this course.
Is the article credible? How do you
know?
Yes, the five-authored article was peer-reviewed and published in a reputable publication: Journal
of American College Health.
Is the author biased? How do you
know?
No, they are not providing an opinion-based piece and cite empirical evidence/research
throughout.
Is the article relevant? Explain your
response.
Yes, it discusses ways for students to be more successful personally, as well as GPA, which is
relevant to my research topic.
Find a passage you might use and
paraphrase it. Include a properly
formatted in-text citation.
Original passage:
“Throughout the past century, businessmen and motivational experts have placed goal setting as
a central construct of their success argument. Although their work is largely anecdotal, scholarly
literature from several domains supports their position. For example, Locke and Latham created
the primary goal-setting theory that is used today in the business world. Researchers in a number
of empirical studies have verified the effectiveness of this theory and others. Psychological and
educational investigators also have associated goal setting with success among elementary
school students, high school students, and university undergraduates.”
Paraphrased passage:
A major predictor of one’s success is based on one’s ability to set clear goals (George, Dixon,
Stansal, Gelb & Pheri, 2008).
