Project 2. Tell us what young people like you think about physician visits (Internet-based)

The study takes about 20 minutes to complete. To begin the study, please go to the internet address below:

If you want to stop and start the survey again later, just return to the above link.

Project 3. Undergraduate Mentor Relationships (Internet-based)

We are studying gender differences in students' general feelings about undergraduate teaching assistants. This is a particularly important issue now because of recent and future changes in the use of upper division undergraduates in these mentoring roles. Previous research shows that successful student mentor relationships are linked to both academic and career success but research also show that male and female students define successful and unsuccessful mentor relationships in different ways. The central part of this study requires you to read a brief description of a recent student complaint and then answer a set of questions about your reactions. 

If you identify as a female CSU student, please go to the internet address below:
