I think this method is an interesting one. This method motivates students to work harder because this instills confidence which I think is a huge problem with at risk students. In fact, I don't believe that there is a relationship between IQ and being a successful college student. As an academic advisor at a university with a somewhat open admission policy, I've seen students with 8th grade reading skills successfully recieve degrees while taking difficult courses. It took them hours in the tutoring lab and hours worth of encouragement but they did it. I think anything that heightens a students confidence is definetly a good thing.
