Does more time improve test scores in micro principles?


  • Robert Feinberg


This note reports on an empirical exercise designed to examine the connection between a student's decision on test-taking time and resulting test scores. Based on a small sample of microeconomics principles students observed over several tests, evidence is found supporting a positive impact of added time.
