Wilson, Aaron T.; Grigorian, Sergey – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
College students may be seen as near-peers to high school students and high school students are often able to see themselves in the college students who are but one step ahead.

Cohen-Vogel, Lora; Little, Michael; Fierro, Christine – Leadership and Policy in Schools, 2019
