Students taking advanced courses at Sturgis Brown High School struggle to manage time and homework along with other activities. In addition to learning how to better manage their time, students also need to develop study skills in order to be successful at the college level. Throughout a semester-long, Advance Placement (AP) Chemistry Course, students were given daily quizzes in lieu of homework. The purpose of this treatment was to identify if frequent assessments increased student learning over time. In addition, the study looked at changes in students' study skills and students' self-assessment. The study concluded that daily quizzes had a positive impact upon student retention and mastery of material.
