Abstract

This Interactive Qualifying Project involved designing and conducting studies that compared various types of tutoring methods for middle school students using the Assistments system. Three separate experiments were conducted for comparing Tutoring against No Tutoring, Correctness against Test Mode and Mastery Learning against Regular Tutoring methods. The data collected was then analyzed to propose effective tutoring methods. Content for the experiments was developed using Assistments and the study was run at Oak Middle School.
