A College Student Organization for Promoting Student to Student Academic Assistance. Final Report.
Morris, Michael R.
The Academic Advancement Co-operative, a student-to-student assistance program designed to provide increased opportunity for academic achievement among students at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, has operated successfully for more than 2 years, during which time it has been of service to a great many college students. As a Federally-funded model program, its main contribution has been to shed some light on the feasibility and practicality of such an innovative program and to provide experience that may prove useful to those in other institutions who wish to establish similar academic assistance programs. As the evaluation presented in the present report shows, the program, while successful and rewarding to all who participated, fell far short of its anticipated aims. However, as the result of this experience, the dynamics of a student-to-student assistance program are now much better understood, and it is anticipated that this knowledge will prove useful, and will be widely disseminated.
