Does Gender, Class Standing, And High School Economics Influence Students' Economic Learning
AbstractThis paper investigates how gender, maturity of the student, and previous economics study in high school contribute to economic learning. Economic learning is measured using the difference between pre- and post-test scores. OLS results suggest that high school economics plays a larger role in economic learning than either gender or maturity.
