Evaluation of the Youth-Tutoring-Youth Project, Summer 1970, Funded Under ESEA Title I, P.L. 89-10. Research and Development Report, Volume IV, Number 10.
One of the main purposes of the program reported herein was to reduce the academic and attitudinal problems of the underachieving high school pupils and to give them the responsibility for producing similar changes in the elementary pupils. The purpose of this evaluation was to determine to what extent the program had been successful. Because of the brief tutoring interval, the detection of changes in pupil behavior was minimized. However, the program did succeed in producing some significant, but rather small changes in the participating pupils. The attitudes of both tutors and tutees were modified in a moderate but positive direction relative to control pupils. (Author)
