Behavioral Economics: Structure
Structure optimizes design
elements for success and
minimizes mistakes.
Students want structure…
“That (block scheduling) would be
fabulous – if you knew you could
schedule your courses every
semester at the same time, wouldn’t
that be a dream come true?”
-- Student
Guided Pathways to Success
Perspectives from Indiana College Students and Advisors
Students want structure…
“I actually like that approach because I’ve had the
days where I go to class for an hour, and then I have
two hours off. Well, I really don’t want to drive home
just to drive all the way back. …I could go into a job
and say, “…I can come in at one thirty or two o’clock
and work with you guys.” I think employers would
appreciate that more because I’ve actually missed out
on a couple of jobs because of my school schedule.”

Essentials of Structured Schedules
 Full-time,
Monday-Friday, morning, afternoon, or
evening or weekend blocks
 Full-time means “15 to Finish” or year-round for parttime students
 Predictable schedule constant throughout
 Whole programs choice, not individual courses
 Student cohorts for added support and faculty
engagement
 Mandatory attendance
TN Colleges of Applied
Technology
 Highly structured, block schedule
program
 81% of students graduate, at rate 3x
higher than peers, even though slightly
poorer and older
 Certificate programs have a job
placement rates of 86%
CUNY ASAP Program
 Students grouped into cohorts with
consolidated block schedules
 Doubled graduation rates for associate
degrees
 55% of fall 2007 cohort earned
associate degrees in 3 years
