Tutorial Students Two Years Later: A Report on the Logan-Cache Tutorial Center for Underachieving Readers and Writers.
Shaver, James P.
To test the long-range effectiveness of its ESEA Title III-sponsored program, officials of the Logan-Cache County Tutorial Center tested students served by the program 1 and 2 years after participation. The students, originally identified as underachievers, had been tutored in one-to-one or one-to-three tutoring situations or had been part of a control group. At the end of 1 year, tutorial students had increased significantly in reading ability. Students in grades 4, 7, and 10 were studied for 2 years after they entered the program, using the Sequential Tests of Educational Progress reading and writing tests. The results of statistical analysis of the findings showed that while tutorial students were still significantly better than controls, the seventh and tenth graders retained more than did fourth graders and, as with original testing, no difference was noted between the two types of tutorial situations. It was concluded that tutoring was valuable in any of its forms and should be continued. Tables are included. (MS)
