Description

The Stats Mentor project aims to offer peer mentoring bespoke to Psychology and Statistics Anxiety. Evaluation of the
pilot intervention was conducted via in-depth qualitative semi-structured interviews post academic year. Initial results
indicate internal motivations for becoming a mentor. Mentors concerns related to unreasonable expectations from
mentees alongside their own time and confidence. Mentees asked for a mentor to decrease their levels of anxiety and
discussed the beneficial impact leading up to the exam. The findings helped secure a second year of funding with
evaluation due to occur in March 2018.
