Economic Literacy in the United States, Germany, and Austria: Results of Cross National Studies.
Krumm, Volker; Beck, Klaus
Designed to assess the economic literacy of high school students in Austria, Germany, and the United States, this research study involved the administration of an economic literacy test and gathering data on attitudes toward economics, on intelligence, and on moral maturity. The main focus of the research was a comparison between 11th and 12th grade students in the United States with those in Germany and Austria. At the time the report was prepared, data from the German students was incomplete. Among the more significant findings of the study was that the achievement of Austrian students in economic literacy was no better or worse than their U.S. peers. A difference in the performance levels between male and female students in both Austria and the United States was noted. A list of four references is included and a number of tables, many containing statistical data, are appended. (DB)
