Abstract: The purpose of this research study is to evaluate whether or not students who choose to alter the grade weightings of required assignments a priori, in accordance with self-precepts of efficacy, improve their final course performance. Data was collected across three sets of MBA students who completed a course on strategic knowledge management. Results show a slight increase in overall performance when students optimise their weightings a priori; additionally, students demonstrated an ability to optimise their weightings correctly for specific course components related to technology and participation.
