The Impact of Tutoring on the Academic Success of Undeclared Students
Reinheimer, David; McKenzie, Kelly
Journal of College Reading and Learning, v41 n2 p22-36 Spr 2011
A cohort of first-time, full-time, degree-seeking undeclared freshmen at a medium-sized university in Pennsylvania was used to study the relationship between tutoring and the retention rates and decision paths of undeclared students. Undeclared students who did and did not receive tutoring were tracked over four years to determine rate and longevity of retention, academic performance, and time span for selecting a major. This research utilized a non-experimental, causal-comparative methodology with data analyzed through t-tests, chi-square procedures, logistic regression, and survival analysis. Findings from the study indicate that tutoring had a significant impact on retention, but not on GPA or on time to select a major. (Contains 7 tables.)
