Data from Texas A&M shows that students who attend SI regularly (10 or more sessions per semester) score half a letter to a full letter grade higher than students who do not attend. Beyond improving grades, students who attend SI are exposed to effective study strategies. Many students do not realize, especially first-time students, that college demands higher levels of learning than memorization. SI Leaders, who have previously taken and mastered course content, serve as a resource, and as role models and guides. See the International Center for Supplemental Instruction
at the University of Missouri-Kansas City for more information on the effectiveness of this international program.
