Student and Tutor Variables Related to Student Progress in a Reading Tutorial Program.
Willey, Diane L.
This study was conducted to identify student and tutor variables related to student progress in a structured summer reading tutorial program. High school and college students and adults tutored individually 121 elementary and junior high school students for six weeks. Criterion variables were number of tutoring books completed, residual gain scores on six achievement measures (oral reading, spelling, word recognition, auditory discrimination-2, and visual-motor coordination), and two affective measures (self-esteem and locus of control). Independent variables were measures of student and tutor characteristics and tutor behaviors during tutoring. Step-wise multiple regression analyses and extreme-groups analyses are presented showing, respectively, the significant predictors of student progress and the tutor variables that significantly differentiated most and least effective tutors.
