It is often pointed out that students’ academic performance becomes worse. Lack of professors’ teaching ability is often considered its major cause, and universities promote faculty development programs. According to our observation, however, the major cause is rather on student’s side, such as lack of motivation, diligence, and other attitudes toward learning. In this paper, we focus on diligence. Diligence is quite important for students to learn effectively. Among various kinds of diligence, we take two kinds of them into consideration; the length of answer text to a questionnaire, and the amount of submitted homework assignments. We investigate how these kinds of diligence of students relate each other, and how they relate to the examination score.
