What are the details of this research study?
Research Study Purpose
The purpose of this research study is to understand the effectiveness of tutoring techniques and the impact of peer tutoring as a whole. The study will be conducted so as not to identify learners, students or their parents other than by individuals of College Board, Stanford or Schoolhouse that have legitimate interests in the information.
Research Tasks and Participation
As part of this study, you will be asked to complete SAT practice tests and attend peer tutoring sessions. In addition, participants may be asked to complete occasional surveys, short exercises, and participate in focus groups about their feelings toward the SAT tutoring. Participation in these bootcamps is voluntary, and you can stop at any time.
Data Sharing and Privacy
In this study, you will not be evaluated on your responses to any of the study tasks. Your responses will be confidential and the information provided will be combined with the responses of others in summary reports that do not identify you as an individual. While the aggregated scores of students may be used by the College Board for research, no individual scores will be shared and this program will not be linked to future SAT scores or the college application process.
The Zoom audio, transcript, and chat data from tutoring sessions will be saved for up to three years, and may be shared with College Board, Stanford University and other researchers. Aggregate or anonymized data may be shared through research publications or other presentations. If research results are made public, no personally identifiable information will be released without the user's (or their parent's) explicit permission.
We hope that you do opt into research recording sharing (i.e. Zoom audio, transcript, and chat data) as it will help to advance the College Board and Stanford's studies on the effectiveness of peer tutoring.
If you would still like to opt out of research recording sharing with the College Board and Stanford, but still participate in an SAT Bootcamp, email [email protected] with the subject line "Opt Out of SAT Research Recording Sharing" and we will make sure your bootcamp recording data (i.e. Zoom audio, transcript, and chat data) is not shared with these research teams. Please include the name and email address of the participant, and email after the participant has already created an account on Schoolhouse.
