Students participate in Peer Assissted Study Session

Peer-Assisted Study Sessions

PASS is a series of ongoing weekly study sessions for students taking difficult courses. The program provides a learning opportunity for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades. Our sessions are led by undergraduate students who have performed well in the class previously. (We have revamped our Supplemental Instruction (SI) program model to create the PASS program, a peer-assisted study session opportunity for all UD undergraduates.)

Participation is FREE and voluntary.

PASS program levels are defined below:

PASS Level 1 (PL1): are typically put into place when a professional staff person has identified a need and or has made a request for additional ongoing support. Formats include, but are not limited to drop-in, study sessions and/or exam review prep. This structure can be adjusted to fit the needs of class demands, it does not follow the traditional PASS level 2 model. Students should come to sessions prepared with questions.

PASS Level 2 (PL2): provides a collaborative learning opportunity at the start of the semester. The leader is trained to engage students and guide them through material using group activities during each session. Leaders also attend class with students during the semester to review course content, take notes, and build relationships with students and the professor. This ultimately enhances our leaders’ connection with the students, helping their holistic understanding of the course. Students do not need to come to the session prepared with questions to ask, PL2 leaders will have activities pre-planned. Leaders hosts these sessions 2-3 times a week throughout the semester.

Benefits for the student include the opportunity to:

  • meet with classmates to compare notes
  • discuss important concepts and practice understanding
  • develop strategies for studying the subject
  • review and create study guides
  • ask questions in an instructor-free zone
