Abstract

The purpose of this project was to find how many Freshman in high school’s movie choices were influenced by other grade levels and which grade level had the most influence. This experiment was conducted by having four influencers, one from each grade fill out a form of their favorite movies.Then freshmen were asked to fill out a different form in which they started out with their own choices, and were then shown the influencers movies, increasing by lowest grade level of the influencer to the highest grade level, and were asked if they would like to make changes to their movie choices. Finally the amount of changes were measured to see which grade had the most influence. Upon analyzing the data the hypothesis was not supported by the data when Seniors caused the least amount of changes to the freshmen’s choices. The results however did show the exact opposite that the closer the class of the influencer to the Freshman the more influence they had.
