The Behavioral Research Supervisory System (BRSS) is exactly what its name implies. It is a system based on behavioral principles, which is used to supervise the progress and productivity of the graduate and undergraduate students involved. As a matter of fact, the mission statement of the system is: "To effectively manage the performance of students on various tasks, ensuring the students exceed expectations and meet deadlines by reducing procrastination, during college." The system was originally designed to increase the productivity of graduate students as related to various mini-projects, however it has expanded to increase productivity of undergraduate students as well. The term research is employed for two main reasons. One reason being that the system is always changing and being revised due to new research findings. The other reason is that the undergraduate student in charge of the system is conducting research on the project itself.
