Debbie, I have successfully used the TESAT with many groups of tutors. This semester, for instance, I used it with a class of tutors at the University at Buffalo Writing Place. They had been trained to use a tutoring model for writing centers, based on the conference approach, developed by McAndrews and Reigstad. Then they tutored for three weeks before completing the TESAT. Use of the TESAT helped the class to do self-assessment, and then we used those results to discuss the areas of most difficulty so they could work on those in subsequent tutoring sessions. The tutors liked this approach; I was able to get a better idea of what is happening in the early weeks of tutoring; the thinking they have to do in order to complete the TESAT created the impetus for a lively discussion on tutoring models! Of course, the TESAT is designed to reflect McDonald's Model, but since all good tutoring is based on the ability of the tutor to build learner independence, many of the same ideas are found in all good methodologies - no matter the content area.
