A recently published paper concludes that tenured professors or those on their way to tenure do not enhance student learning as much as lecturers outside the tenure system do. The researchers found that students taught by instructors outside the tenure system are more likely to take another class in the same subject and to receive better grades in the subsequent class than those who have been taught by tenured or tenure-track professors. However, this information does not demonstrate that non-tenured professors are more successful in keeping the student interest high in the taught subject as _____________

Which of the following, if true, best completes the passage?

A) tenured professors usually have far more extensive experience in research than do non-tenured professors.

B) the more the number of hours taught by non-tenured and tenure-track professors, the better are their chances to be offered a tenured position.

C) both tenured and non-tenured professors have equal access to resources such as research papers, field specific books etc.

D) non-tenured professors are normally fresh graduates from colleges and are hence able to build a better rapport with their students.

E) The introductory level classes in a subject for which students have to take mandatory advanced classes are normally assigned to the non-tenured professors.
