Question Description

Part 1

Can a student mentor improve the grades of freshman high school students?

Complete parts A-D.

You want to determine if pairing an incoming freshman with a sophomore in a mentor–mentee relationship will enhance the freshman’s overall grade. You recruit sophomores who are willing to mentor students in their majors for their first terms. You then recruit freshmen who are interested in having mentors. Freshmen who apply to this program will be assigned to the mentor group (and will be given mentors) or to the control group (no mentor) on an alternating basis. Those in the mentor group are to meet their mentors in person once a week at a time of their choosing. All freshmen, in both groups, agree to submit their transcripts at the conclusion of the term.
