A peer tutor test can be given as part of the peer tutor training program
(Houston-Wilson, Lieberman et al. 1997; Lieberman, Houston-Wilson, 2002). The test should consist of any information directly relevant to the particular program. Things to consider include (1) the type of disability (signs for a child who is deaf, techniques for physical assistance for a child with cerebral palsy, or a behavior modification program for a child with a behavior problem), (2) the unit of instruction (cooperative games, basketball, swimming, or others), and (3) the goals of the program (teamwork, improvement of skills, improvement of fitness, socialization, or other goals). Instructors should decide what skills would be considered necessary for the tutee to be able to articulate and develop written or oral exams to test this knowledge. The tutor should be able to score at least 90 percent or better to continue in the peer tutor program. If the child does not meet this standard, then he or she should be instructed in the weak areas and given the test again. A complete peer tutor program including the application procedures and test can be found in the Strategies for Inclusion (Lieberman & Houston-Wilson, 2002) book.
