This action research was driven by the researcher’s interest in student planners and the effect they can have on student success by reducing the number of missing assignments. The research was conducted to analyze the effectiveness of student planners in a school setting. The researcher is a seventh-grade science teacher in her nineteenth year of teaching. The researcher conducted a study for four weeks with two seventh-grade classes. One group used student planners as a control group, and the other group of students did not use student planners. The findings revealed a trend of increased student success as students using planners reduced the number of missing assignments in four weeks. This research was conducted to share the positive impact student planners have on student success with the administration team in hopes of the school again purchasing student planners for all students.
