A CWPT study was conducted in a job training programs certified nursing assistant classroom. Students involved in the study ranged in age from 18-24. Vocabulary words were chosen to assist the students with their daily quizzes. Sixteen students participated in the study. Students were randomly paired with other students and placed on either the red or blue team each week the study was in place. Students participated in tutoring for a total of 20 minutes a day. Students acted as both tutors and tutees, switching roles after ten minutes. Points were earned for correct answers and were added with their team’s scores after each day’s session. Results showed that CWPT raised the daily averages of test scores and their ability to work with their peers.
