Research on Teaching College Economics: Selected Readings.
Fels, Rendigs, Ed.; Siegfried, John J., Ed.
The journal articles reprinted in this publication were selected to aid scholars interested in doing research on the teaching of college economics or in learning about the results of such research. The preface points out that the readings are not intended to provide advice on how to teach economics better. With the exception of one, all of the articles have been previously published in scholarly journals and subjected to their review procedures. The 28 articles are organized into four main sections: surveys of the literature, critiques of research methodology, foundations of research, and research reports. Some examples of the types of articles included are: Male-Female Differences in Economic Education: A Survey; Student Performance and Changes in Learning Technology in Required Courses; The Efficiency of Programmed Learning in Teaching Economics; The Lasting Effects of Introductory Economics Courses; Teacher Effectiveness and Student Performance; Student-to-Student Tutoring in Economics; and Test Information.
