|Title:||Impact Evaluation of the U.S. Department of Education's Student Mentoring Program|
|Description:||The study examined the effects of the U.S. Department of Education's Student Mentoring Program (SMP) on students' interpersonal relationships, academic outcomes, and delinquent
and risk behaviors.
The study focused on about 2,600 at-risk fourth-through-eighth-grade students in 32 SMP sites.
Applicants were randomly assigned to a program group that was offered SMP services or to a control group that was not. Control-group students were free to receive mentoring services through other programs.
The authors collected data on students' interpersonal relationships and delinquent and risk behaviors through student surveys. They collected data on course grades, statewide assessment scores, and disciplinary infractions from school records.
