Academic Achievement and Peer Tutoring in Mathematics: A Comparison Between Primary and Secondary Education

Francisco Alegre, Lidón Moliner, Ana Maroto, Gil Lorenzo-Valentin
2020 SAGE Open  
Future research must be conducted as the superiority of Peer Tutoring in Primary over Secondary Education has yet to be proved in the Mathematics subject.  ...  The comparison between these educational levels showed that there were no significant differences in the increments of the students' marks.  ...  In the case of this study, it was not possible to have a control group due to legal issues concerning the experiment.  ...

Cross-year Peer Tutoring in Healthcare and Dental Education: A Review of the Literature

Lauren Hum, Justin Maccaro, Sang E. Park
2014 Journal of Curriculum and Teaching  
The purpose of this review is two-fold.  ...  Thus, our study did a critical review of the literature involving cross-year peer tutoring programs that involved the pairing of junior and senior students.  ...  Additionally, seven of the CYPT programs taught a very specific skill set (i.e. portion of the physical exam) which causes concern that the success of those programs may not be generalizable to peer tutoring  ...

Pair Programming vs. Side-by-Side Programming [chapter]

Jerzy R. Nawrocki, Michał Jasiński, Łukasz Olek, Barbara Lange
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In the paper an experiment is described that aimed at comparison of those two styles. The subjects were 25 students of Computer Science of 4 th and 5 th year of study.  ...  Some of them (e.g. XP or Crystal Clear) recommend pair programming. There are two styles of pair programming: XP-like and side-byside (the latter comes from Crystal Clear).  ...  The objective of the paper is to present an experiment aiming at comparison of SbS and pair programming. In Sec. 2 methodological aspects concerning programming experiments are discussed.  ...
