Accountability in Tutorial Programs.
Curran, Faye
This paper describes procedures developed for evaluating the tutorial program at a two-year college. At the end of each school term, evaluation forms are sent to faculty from whose classes the tutees have come, to the tutors, and to the tutees. As part of an objective evaluation system, the program directors have developed a method for converting college entrance examination scores into grade prognosis scores for given academic subjects. This predictive grade and the tutee's grade in the course before beginning tutoring are compared with the final grade, received after tutoring, to assess the effects of the tutoring. The program directors also tabulate data regarding the reduction in attrition of students due to the tutorial program and then translate these figures into tuition savings for the institution. The paper includes the table used for converting college entrance examination scores into grade-point predictors, and it provides samples of the forms used for all aspects of the evaluation procedures.
