The main purpose of this study was to determine the effect of the Classwide Peer Tutoring (CWPT) program on the achievement scores of special education and general education students. The sample consisted of twenty-five students in a co-taught, middle school classroom. Ten of these students had an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), and fifteen students were classified as general education students. The study was conducted over a four-week time period, and the treatment produced varied results. It was determined that although no significant improvement was observed, progress was made in both groups.
