Demonstrating Tutoring Effectiveness within a One-semester Course
The results of college-level tutoring programs are best described as mixed. Although some studies have detected beneficial effects (Lidren, Meier, & Brigham, 1991; Longuevan & Shoemaker, 1991), others reveal no positive tutoring effect (Griffin & Griffin, 1995). In 1986, McKeachie concluded that there are few clear demonstrations of the benefits of undergraduate peer tutors. The present study attempted to contribute additional evidence to understanding the effect of peer tutors in the undergraduate classroom.
