Analysis of the 1969-1970 Academic Tutorial Program at Michigan State University.
Biskin, Donald S.
This is a report of the tutorial and counseling support programs initiated by the Center for Urban Affairs and Equal Opportunity Programs at Michigan State University during the 1969-70 academic year. The report discusses: (1) the objectives of the program which included improving the student's self-image; (2) the organizational structure of the program's staff which consisted of an education specialist, head counselors, counselors, tutor coordinators, and tutors; (3) the tutorial procedures; and (4) the results of the program. One hundred and eighteen students were tutored in the fall term and 64 in the spring term; 15 were counseled and 5 received both tutoring and counseling. Eighty-two of the students responded to an attitude survey that elicited information on demographic characteristics, perceptions of self and the university, and expectations and results of tutorial program and tutor-tutee relationship. Information was also obtained on their gradepoint averages. The results indicated that a majority of the students believed they had received assistance from the tutorial program; and the students on the average had made substantial gains in their academic achievement.
