What is TutorTrac?

TutorTrac is software designed to monitor the progress of students who received tutoring or supplemental instruction. At semester's end, TutorTrac reports how students performed relative to their peers that did not received help from a tutor or SI leader. The College's original setting for using TutorTrac was the College's Student Achievement Centers.

In our library setting, TutorTrac allows us to compare the grade performance and withdrawal rate of those students enrolled in a particular course who attended library information literacy sessions compared to those who did not attend an information literacy session.
