We always can use help, so if the projects below interest you, please participate:

Project 1. Did the T.A. cross the line? Evaluate a student complaint

We are studying gender differences in students' perceptions of undergraduate teaching assistants. This is a particularly important issue because of recent and future changes in the use of upper division undergraduates in these mentoring roles. Our goal is to get a clearer picture of how gender differences influence students' attitudes toward potentially problematic student mentor relationships. We plan to compare male students with female students. The central part of this study requires you to read a brief description of a student complaint and then answer a set of questions about your reactions.
