Peer effects in exogenously formed student groups
AbstractWe estimate the influence of classmates ability characteristics on student achievement in exogenously formed student groups. The study uses the administrative data on undergraduate students in large selective university in Russia. The presence of high-ability classmates has positive effect on individual academic performance, and most benefit is gained by students at the top of the ability distribution. The increase in share of less able students influences individual grades insignificantly.
