-- Student resilience is a real issue that impacts the lives of thousands of students across the country. One out of every four college student suffers from a form of emotional uncertainty, and 30 percent of college students report feeling "so depressed that it was difficult to function" at some time in the past year.
Recent research shows a positive correlations between GPA and perseverance (r= .20, p <.05) and reflecting and adaptive help-seeking (r= .37, p<.01). The results of the multiple regression analysis manifested reflecting and adaptive help-seeking to be the only significant predictor of a higher GPA.
Lynn Bentley, President, of Knobull announced, "Research suggests that while these factors may make students vulnerable, academic success less probable and more at-risk to leaving school before degree attainment, some students employ an innate coping mechanism that gives them the resilience necessary to experience academic success. Rather than leaving this capability as a chance occurrence, the Knobull team has expanded its support systems to enhance student success factors."
Resilient students may experience the same stressful experiences as less-resilient students, however, they have protective mechanisms in place to deal with these difficulties and thrive. Knobull offers a free Resilience Assessment with feedback to help students understand their resilience profile and take steps to receive needed guidance and development!
The Knobull TeleEd Program is an excellent resource to help students address this very need. This online program was built specifically for college students to help them explore, understand, and share their unique college experiences. It is available to students 24/7 and provides hundreds of articles, Q&As, student stories, and other resources on all topics related to their student life experience. Students can learn about resilience, study skills, academic tips, personal data security, managing debt and search for academic sources.
Based on a student feedback, TeleEd has proved to be an extremely valuable tool for supporting students improved learning needs on campus. The power of these students' words is hard to deny. This resource is making a difference in students' lives across the country, helping them cope with the challenges they face and providing them the knowledge and skills they need to thrive!
Bentley concluded, "Knobull is an Academic Search Engine that empowers students to seamlessly take control of their academic success, without any tradeoffs. With roots as a search engine that doesn't track users, we expanded what we do to develop learning skills no matter where student life and career growth takes them."
