An elementary school in Taitung County was selected to explore the implementation process of this project. Chinese and Math competence test sheets for students in Grade 1~6 were also designed to assess the learning outcome of 51 pupils participating in this project based on a quasi-experiment design. Conclusions were as follows: 1. This project aimed at “providing pupils with remedial instructions while also helping them with their homework.” The teachers assisted the pupils in their learning of the Chinese and Math subjects and also endeavored to induce their learning motivation and increase their learning confidence. 2. Grade 1, 2, 4, and 6 Pupils who participated in the project had significant improvements in their Chinese language, while grade 2, 4, and 6 pupils had significant improvements in Math.
