Theoretically students know the right thing to do. However, there is no skill set or application to their understanding There is no shame in failure. It has become a norm/culture. I have nothing to lose mentality. Behavior is incongruent with knowledge or consequences. I can play catch up at the end of the semester. Application of knowledge should be rewarded instead of rewarding understanding of concepts (ie: teachers reward extra credit for proof of test prep at least 3 days before the test) There should be a mandatory study skills elective for these students as an intervention.
