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 sequentially assigned to one of three groups: Group 1 will be the control group (no mentor), Group 2 will be the in-person mentor group, and Group 3 will be the e-mentor group. Those in the in-person mentor group are to meet in person once a week at a time of their choosing, and those in the e-mentor group will communicate digitally at least once a week. All freshmen, in each group, agree to submit their transcripts at the conclusion of the term.
