The Economics of Gender and Educational Achievement: Stylized Facts and Causal Evidence
There are two well-established gender gaps in education. First, females tend to have higher educational attainment and achievement than males, and this is particularly the case for children from less


The Long-Term Consequences of Teacher Discretion in Grading of High-Stakes Tests
We examine the long-term consequences of teacher discretion in grading of high-stakes tests. Bunching in Swedish math test score distributions reveal that teachers inflate students who have “a bad
The Impact of Test Score Labels on Human-Capital Investment Decisions
Students receive abundant information about their educational performance, but how this information affects future educational-investment decisions is not well understood. Increasingly, results from
The Importance of Relative Performance Feedback Information: Evidence from a Natural Experiment Using High School Students
We study the effect of providing relative performance feedback information on performance under piece-rate incentives. A natural experiment that took place in a high school offers an unusual
Academic Performance and College Dropout: Using Longitudinal Expectations Data to Estimate a Learning Model
We estimate a dynamic learning model of college dropout, taking advantage of unique expectations data to greatly reduce our reliance on standard assumptions. Our simulations show that 45% of dropout
The effect of being graded on later achievement: evidence from 13-year olds in Swedish compulsory school
The purpose of the study was to investigate how grading of students in primary school affected achievement measured by grades one year later, and how the effect varied as a function of cognitive
Does Reading During the Summer Build Reading Skills? Evidence from a Randomized Experiment in 463 Classrooms
Results from a randomized evaluation of a summer reading program called Project READS show evidence that reading more books generates increases in reading comprehension skills, particularly when students read carefully enough to be able to answer basic questions about the books they read, and particularly for girls.
Grades and Rank: Impacts of Non-Financial Incentives on Test Performance
How does effort respond to being graded and ranked? This paper examines the effects of non-financial incentives on test performance. We conduct a randomized field experiment on more than a thousand
The Danish National Tests at a Glance
This paper describes the format of the Danish national tests and documents a socioeconomic gradient in student’s national test scores. The national test program was implemented in 2010 and covers ten
Leveraging Technology to Engage Parents at Scale: Evidence from a Randomized Controlled Trial
The intervention appears to change parents’ beliefs about their child’s performance and increases parent monitoring, and the results show that this type of automated technology can improve student effort relatively cheaply and at scale.
