Abstract

This study aims to present the main aims of a study skills project developed in two main interrelated sections: diagnosis and intervention. In the diagnosis process, the used a questionnaire (Queststud) directed to the students allowed the assessment of the comprehension/retention and writing levels of competence. On the other hand, through the use of the Questprof specifically directed to their professors, we aimed to assess the students’ level of competence based on their experiences during classes. In the intervention process, a “Study Skills Workshop” was developed where students have the opportunity of experiencing specific reading comprehension, retention and writing strategies and develop their skills in order to overcome their own difficulties.
