This study examines the impact on student performance of one section of a new model of first-year seminar, which is paired with an introductory-level core social science course. Their results indicate that students in the first-year seminar paired with Supplemental Instruction achieved significantly higher grades in the paired core course, attained significantly higher semester grade point averages for the semester of intervention, and had significantly better retention rates after two years than students in a control group.
