ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a research study which discussed the impact of supplemental educational services as a component of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) policy on student achievement in the U.S. The researchers mention that grade level is a statistically important moderator of effect sizes for both mathematics as well as reading outcomes. They also state that individual tutoring with certain characteristics can be efficient in terms of adapting instruction to individual variations in educational settings.
