The subject registration information shows that each cohort had at least 300 enrolments and, at most, over 800 enrolments. A review of academic results throughout four academic years was performed, the sample size of the study consisting of a total of 1,815 PALSI students and 5,869 non-PALSI students. This article focuses on the quantitative analysis in comparing the performance of PALSI students and non-PALSI students by monitoring their academic results consecutively in different cohorts. In this study, a t-test is implemented to evaluate the effectiveness of the peer-assisted learning scheme by identifying the academic results of each cohort to ascertain if there is a significant difference between the two groups.
Similar investigation on the effectiveness of the PALSI scheme with different accounting knowledge background before joining the undergraduate programmes is implemented in the latter part. The findings of the analysis provide remarkable academic enhancement for students with PALSI support, and it is concluded that the scheme is worth extending to different subjects in the business discipline in the future.
