More Detail


The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of tutoring on students passing rate in remedial mathematics algebra courses, and to probe students’ own reasons for failing an introductory mathematics course. Two experiments were conducted, one to study the impact of individual tutoring for students taking a remedial course for the second time, and the second to study the impact of an in-class tutoring for a whole group. In both experiments, statistical analysis indicated that tutoring significantly improved passing rate in the remedial courses and increased the mean scores for the first time takers.
