"The Effects of Student Coaching: An Evaluation of a Randomized Experiment in Student Advising"
Student coaching can boost the likelihood that at-risk students will complete college, finds a new study in Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis.
The study analyzed a peer-mentoring program that helps students develop clear goals and build time management, advocacy, and study skills.
Participating students had 15 percent higher college retention than peers after two years of peer mentoring, and also were more likely to still be attending college a year after the program ended.
