Effect of Writing Centers and Targeted Pairings on Students Repeating First-Year Composition
Diederich, Nicole A.; Schroeder, Sandra J.
Learning Assistance Review, v13 n2 p17-26 Fall 2008
This study suggests that students repeating a first-year composition course benefit from working with specific tutors in the writing center. The article focuses on students who did not pass first-year composition and took a tutorial version of the course. A chi-square analysis shows that students working with a specific tutor had a higher pass rate at a significant level than those who did not. Further study should be done with a larger sample size.
