Abstract: This paper describes an online organization model as a tool to improve the grades of jr. high school students. The design of this online organization model utilizes an html-based tool. A class from a local junior high will be randomly selected to participate in this study. The students are then randomly assigned to either the organizational tool group or the control group. The students in the organizational group will gain access to the website containing this particular interactional model and complete it daily. The researchers will analyze data collected from these participants and compare the students using the online organizational tool to the students who did not participate in the online organization model. This study examines if online organizational tools are effective in bringing up students grades. If the program proves to be effective, it could be a viable alternative to costly and time-consuming tutoring programs.
