Face-to-Face and Computer Mediated Tutoring: A Comparative Exploration on High School Students' Math Achievement.
Schpilberg, Barbara; Hubschman, Betty
This study explores computer-meditated tutoring and a traditional tutoring model that is carried out on a face-to-face basis and investigates whether there is a difference in high school students' mathematics achievement. In this study, there was no statistically significant difference between the face-to-face and the computer-mediated tutored students' mathematical achievement, and there was no significant difference between the students who had less than 10 tutoring sessions and students who had more than 10 tutoring sessions with regard to their mathematical achievement. The results imply that computer-mediated tutoring can be as effective as face-to-face tutoring with mathematical concepts. (KHR)
