Predicting Student Performance Using Online One-Minute Papers
AbstractOne-minute papers are often used to encourage students to think and write briefly about their own learning, because teachers believe that metacognition and writing help students to learn. The proportion of online one-minute papers that students submit, however, has not previously been used to explain student achievement in economics. This paper shows that the completion rate is a very significant predictor of student performance after controlling for other variables already noted in the literature. Removing small observation categories does not affect the significance or stability of key regression coefficients. Students who complete online one-minute papers more regularly also perform better in Principles of Microeconomics.
