The Effects of Peer Tutoring on Student Achievement.
A study examined the effects of peer tutoring on the achievement of fourth grade remedial readers. Subjects (N=30) were randomly assigned to a control or an experimental group, both of which were pretested using the "Gates-MacGinitie Reading Tests" and both received regular classroom instruction. The experimental group received tutoring for ten weeks by eighth grade students in an afterschool setting. At the end of ten weeks, both groups were posttested. The results indicated that peer tutoring was an effective strategy for improving the achievement of remedial readers since raw scores for the experimental sample were higher than those for the control sample. (Tables of data are included, and the raw posttest scores for each group are appended.) (Author/HTH)
