Below are some samples of exceptional student and mentee work:
- Stats lab homework assignment: A sample set of exercises designed to provide students with practice modifying SAS syntax, running analyses, and reporting findings in the appropriate form.
- Stats lab group project: Students work in small groups to conceive and design a novel research project, generate “ideal” data, select and carry out all appropriate statistical analyses, and cogently report their findings to their classmates. Students were encouraged to use imagination in deriving a research question. In the following stellar example, students analyzed the efficacy of various strategies used in the course of the Hunger Games.
