Meeting state and federal standards is a consistent challenge for schools. One method for increasing student achievement, thereby meeting the standards mandated by government institutions, is tutoring. Gathering information about and seeking views on tutoring is crucial before it can be applied to school reform. The present study utilized an online poll about tutoring to obtain students' views and to examine meaningful outcomes with regard to demographic variables. Using the results of the present study, schools and districts can tailor and implement changes accordingly; for example, they can develop the best method for a particular demographic group to relay information about tutoring. In this way, strategies can be created and applied for individualized subgroups, thereby maximizing success for all students. The insights gained about tutoring from the ones who have the most at stake-the students-will provide the basis for designing and implementing tutoring programs. Electronic polls are an effective way to obtain student perceptions, providing the foundation for successful school reform and student success, in addition to building a learning community for all stakeholders.
