A Longitudinal Comparative Study of a Process Oriented Tutorial Program. OASIS Research Report No. 5.
Hedges, Larry V.; Majer, Kenneth
The grade-point average (GPA) of Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) freshmen who received tutoring through the OASIS Provosts' Tutorial Fellowship Program and EOP freshmen who did not receive such tutoring were compared at the University of California, San Diego. A one-way analysis of covariance using high school GPA, Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) mathematics score, and SAT verbal score as covariates revealed significantly higher adjusted grades for the tutored group in each of three replications over a period of three years. These students were also tracked through their sophomore year and, in two of three replications, the students who were tutored as freshmen also had significantly lower sophomore year attrition than the students who were untutored as freshmen.
