Homework Effort and Course Performance: Evidence from a Field Experiment
MetadataShow full item record
We conduct a field experiment at Texas A&M in which students enrolled in an online course are provided information about the correlation of homework effort on exam scores via a one-time email. Due to randomization of assignment to treatment, we are able to estimate its causal effects on student performance. We find that providing students with information on the correlation of homework effort on grades has no significant impact on student homework, quiz, and exam grades.
