Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies
Elementary School Mathematics

Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies was found to have no discernible effects on mathematics achievement for elementary school students.

Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies is a peer-tutoring program for grades K–6 that aims to improve student proficiency in several disciplines. During the 30-35 minute peer-tutoring sessions, students take turns acting at the tutor, coaching and correcting one another as they work through problems. The designation of tutoring pairs and skill assignment is based on teacher judgement of student needs and abilities, and teachers reassign tutoring pairs regularly.
