The purpose of this study was to determine if undergraduate students who participated in objective setting conferences prior to a full-time internship exhibited greater self-awareness than students who did not. Using a Solomon 4 group design and the t test for independent samples, it was found there was no significant statistical difference between the experimental and control group. A conclusion drawn from the study was that although objective setting conferences may not lead to greater self awareness on a standardized inventory, individual conferences help students become focused and actively engaged in the learning experience.
